Possibly.  I chose "link=" because that's Google's mnemonic for
finding pages that link to another one.  And "list=" is the option
that bugs me more...

"list=" allows the resulting list of pages to be filtered based on
a set of patterns defined in configuration files by the wikiadministrator.  

   list=all            shows all pages
   list=normal         show all "normal" pages; i.e., excluding
                       *.RecentChanges, *.AllRecentChanges, Site.*,
                       *.GroupHeader, *.GroupFooter, etc.
   list=calendar       show all pages with a name in "yyyy-dd-mm" format

I'm all in favor of having another name for this parameter if we 
can come up with a better one.
