At some level I almost want it to be just a keyword on the page,
such as (:archived:), and we ignore pages with that keyword on it.

Another approach might be to have an archive.d/ directory (analogous
to wiki.d/ and wikilib.d/ ) where page files get moved when they're 
archived.  Then we simply let pagelist and search skip over archive.d/
when looking up pages.  Everything else then works the same.
