There is a pagination helper that is maintained, although I personally
have not used it yet. The source code for haskellers.com is the largest,
most featureful site source code available  For the repeated form
elements you are trying to create multiple models at once? There is some
mass-input functionality available in the latest version of yesod-forms.
Since you are planning on asking lots of questions- please try to subject
tag your questions by component you are asking about (i.e. [Persistent]).
Also consider trying Stack Overflow or the Freenode #yesod channel for some
of your questions.
We always look forward to hearing about direct comparisons- those often end
up providing very useful feedback, and I don't know that anyone has done one
against PHP, although Blake Rain did start an application in PHP and happily
switched it to Yesod.
