This does work.

Not sure that this approach works in a generic fashion. The goal is to 
have a 'backlink' link for every page. This approach would mean creating 
a backlink page for every page that gets created -- since the page name 
is hardcoded. We could make this work is we can pass a parameter into a 
page. The Backlink page would be something like:   
    (:pagelist link={$PASSED_IN_THRU_URL} fmt=bygroup list=normal:)

Not sure this can be done, and I can think of a couple of problems with 
this approach.
