Could I have a modest wish? I was playing with new features and tried
to utilize page text variables. It would be very helpful if pagelist
supported something like this:

(:pagelist $:State=#CA#TX order=$:State:)

I borrowed this syntax from (:include:) directive and it would have
basically similar meaning. It would start listing pages when $:State
matches 'CA' value and stop listing when $:State matches 'TX' value.
Some other modification as in (:include:) could work, too, e.g.

(:pagelist $:State=#CA# order=$:State:)
(:pagelist $:State=##TX order=$:State:)

Is something like this feasible?
