I think James is correct, and Martin's syntax does not work.
You cannot exclude groups or pages from pagelist output.
You can only exclude pages which do carry a searchterm, by having a
minus in front of the term.
I think Martin got confused with what is proposed by Pm for a future
pagelist syntax. It is not yet implemented.
