Ah, yes, the long teaser debate. Did you people reach a conclusion? I 
remember Pm was saying he could Cookbook the solution where the first 
paragraph of a page can be served after the page name upon using an 
argument to pagelist and friends.

How about if the argument gets a value, it's used to determine how long the 
string will be.

(:pagelist group=Machine fmt=include section=#Net chars=50:)

would display:

:pagename1:<first 50 chars in section #Net on pagename1>
:pagename2:<first 50 chars in section #Net on pagename2>
