[pmwiki-users] WikiTrail enhancement request

I'm used to implement my own wikitrail version where I managed to
circonvent some of the cosmetic defaults still present in the
wikitrail code [1]. Now, I'm stuck with the following functional
enhancement need, which I think requires some design feedback [2]:

Having several lists on a wiki page, I want to be able to "isolate"
the wikitrail reference list from the rest of the page, as the
(:include:) directive does:

* some list elements
* out of considered trail
* list elements
* used in the trail
* ...

The Wiki trail syntax could then become something like:

<<|Group.Page#trail|>> or <<|[[Group.Page#trail]]|>>

which provides the feature but may not be so nice to appear on the page.
Therefore, I was wondering if we could consider a wikitrail as a kind
of link and reuse its syntaxic features such as:

<<|Group.Page#trail|My Wikitrail name|>>
or <<|My Wikitrail name -> Group.Page#trail|>>


<<|[[Group.Page#trail|My Wikitrail name]]|>>
or <<|[[My Wikitrail name -> Group.Page#trail]]|>>

Any comments?

to reinvent the wheels :)
