Perhaps you could show the 'nr of items left' as a tooltip of sorts when the
user actually drags the slider.
If the user doesn't drag (or hovers over ) the slider 'nr of items left'
isn't shown.

Moreover, initially a slider doesn't limit the results so 'nr of items left'
shown for the slider would be the same as the overall number of items left
(thereby being redundant)

I must say I haven't seen this been implemented but it would be rather easy
to adapt a slider implementation, to show the nr on drag/ hover.  (they exit
for jquery, scriptaculous and a bunch of other libs)
