It partly does fix things.
As far as could understand things move this way:
1) wiki.d/.pageindex is removed, but no difference is to be noted on
the toggledictindex behaviour.
2) I open Platters page and change the (:title:) to something else
than Doors, save, then re-open it and re-set Doors again. From now on
*that* page behaves fine.
3) Other pages need the same treatment to be properly seen. Each of them

Anyway, toggledictindex looks quite nice, compact, and practical.

I also noted two more issues: firstly, it does *not* handle well
titles which start with a number (example: 1To1). It doesn't create an
index for them.

Second issue: I tried to include it in the page header, within the
skin template, either with the <!--markup:...--> or the
<!--wiki:SomeGroup.SomePage--> tecnique. They both do not work, in
that pages are open with the *whole* index shown, while it should
default to "hide". This issue does not appear as I use the markup on a
normal page, not even if I include it in other pages with the
(:include:) directive.
