If each page is a subelement, you can just check the size of the array returned by $element->get_containers($page_element_key_name).
my $pagecount = scalar($element->get_containers($page_element_key_name));

The value returned by $burner->get_page() is the number of the current
page minus one. So it's false on page 1, and a positive integer for all
