It's detailed in the docs/sample-config.php file, but essentially
a site administrator can do:

   $AutoCreate['/^Category\\./'] = array('ctime' => $Now);

This says that anytime a page is created that has a link to
a page in the Category group, create an empty page for that

More like the (:if date:) conditional.  However, the (:if date:)
conditional compares against the current date and time, as opposed
to comparing against a page's name or the last modification time.
