One doesn't *have* to create the page. The markup
(:pagelist link=Category.MyNewCategory:) will still work
even if the Category.MyNewCategory page doesn't exist. And
many sites put the category listing into the group footer, as
which will display the pages in the category even if the category
page doesn't exist.
I don't have a good answer at the moment for the original question
(how to get a list of categories). It may indeed turn out to be
that we'll combine the pagelist functionality with refcount somehow
to get the complete list.
