I don't have a syntax for doing this yet, but it'd be nice for
us to come up with one.  :-)

If doing an exact match (as opposed to a wildcard match), then
one can do the following in the pagelist template

    (:if equal {=$:BookAuthor} Adams:)

but that's *really* inefficient.  So, it'd be a good idea to come
up with a way of filtering entries in pagelists, but I'm not
sure what it is yet.
