If I am reading this correctly, the targets= feature
is already implemented by the PageListExtensions
recipe except that I do not think that I implemented
wildcards so it will only be useful for a single page.

You could look at the way I do it if you want to not
use the pagelist index (I borrowed the code from
another recipe).  Or maybe you would even enhance that
recipe? :)

But I never thought of using it with the
group=Category option, I don't know if it will work,
probably?  Cool, I didn't think of using it quite that
