How can I view/defrag pagefile fragmentation?

A. System Internals has released PageDefrag, a free utility that shows fragmentation in the pagefile and then offers the option of defragmentation at boot time.

The utility can be downloaded from http://www.sysinternals.com/pagedfrg.htm. Once you download just unzip the file and run pagedfrg.exe. Below is a sample output.

I understand that Executive Software's Diskeeper 4.0 can also defragment pagefiles however I have not seen it in action (http://www.diskeeper.com).
