If you do not use data-role=page attribute on the page elements, their contents will not stretch to fit the widget width, and several items will be visible at once. However, currently scrolling always scrolls to the full widget length.
I think that we can implement such feature for the next release - scroll percentage configuration option (by default, 100). If you set it to 50, swiping will scroll the widget to 50% of the width, thus displaying some amount of the previous page too.
Would such option work for your case?
Thank you in advance,
