Now added in 2.2.0-beta10, just released.  The page variable format
is {$$option} (same as PageListExtension), so that if someone
does the following pagelist directive:

    (:pagelist group=XYZ fruit=apple:)

then the option parameter values are available inside the 
pagelist template as {$$group} and {$$fruit}.

Also, while I'm on the topic, the changes to the handling of 
page variables has also necessitated a change to {$PageCount}, 
{$GroupCount}, and {$GroupPageCount}, as they interfere with
the relative page variable handling.  So, the new versions are
now {$$PageCount}, {$$GroupCount}, and {$$GroupPageCount},
and this adds a nice consistency of being "meta pagevariables"
like the {$$option} ones.
