ok, i suppose a visitor that makes a search doesn't care if the information
he wants is in a blog entry or not, i speak about a webmaster/site admin.
imagine a site with thousand pages...
of course we can also say that in a wiki the concept of "webmaster" is
quite loose as everybody is (potentially) an author.
in any case, i think it can come handy sometimes to have the possibility
to distinguish between them. maybe could be enough to have the
possibility, through (:bloglist:) or (:pagelist:), to list all pages of
all blogs or all pages who are not part of a blog.

fair enough! i can see the advantages of this.

yes, that's better. full flexibility. :-)
