This can miss some category links, however (e.g., where the
category was specified with spaces in the name).  Eventually we're
likely to have a category=Name option to (:pagelist:) that
correctly handles category links.

In the meantime, the workaround is either '[[!{$Name]]' as above
or to use link= and don't use page links such as [[Category/2005]]
if you don't want the page to be included in the category.  Using
"link=" results in much faster generation of the category page.
