Hmm, that doesn't quite work.  The whole purpose of the pageindex
is to give us a way to avoid reading page files -- but if we have to
then check the pages for a "stale" flag, we've lost the advantage
of the pageindex.

We could potentially put the stale marker outside of the page file --
for example, having a ".stalepages" file or separate files named 
"Group.PageName.stale" that indicate stale pages ... but somehow
this seems overly hackish to me.
