Ok. Btw, here's what it says right now:
The name of the current page being shown/edited/otherwise acted
upon. Examples: 'SideBar', 'HomePage'.
See also $FullName and $Group.
Should it really be 'PageName'... and should it refer to $FullName and
$Group? Seems like some $-substitutions have been intermixed with the PHP
variables here, or is the whole page about $-substitions?

Eh.. $group and $name... do you mean that SetPageName() will create these
as global variables?
Would work for me though, although now that I've thought about it I think
that Group() is a bit cleaner (and you can't assign it).
