Haven't tried it, but it seems you could use the new $$var's that you
pass into the pagelist template, combined with some kind of
conditional in the pagelist to do this.  That is, something like:

       (:pagelist $:State order=$:State begin=CA end=TX:)

And then in pagelist template something like:

       if item between $$begin and $$end, show in list

Sorry about not showing the template code, but don't know how to do a
condition alphabetically. Maybe someone else could come up with the
actual template.  Hope this helps though.
