Are you using authorization groups and/or authuser?  If so, it's
as easy as:

    (:pagelist fmt=#group group=Editions*:)

which will display a list of all groups for which the person has
read permission set (assuming $EnablePageListProtect is 1, the default).

Perhaps you can set $EnablePageListProtect=0; in local/Main.HomePage.php ?
Or, even better:

    if ($action == 'browse') $EnablePageListProtect = 0;

On the downside, this might let some parameters through via url
query string arguments, so I need to add an option to (:pagelist:)
to prevent url arguments from being considered.
