I was hoping to find a solution that didn't require a recipe, but I'll pass this
along to the PmWiki/Question page.

But wouldn't that pagelist be limited to an exact match?  If I want all pages
that include the sting in any part of the page name, wouldn't I need to wrap the
name value in wildcards, like this:

  (:pagelist name=*{$!pagename}* :)

Or am I missing something?
