The 'L' just indicates that this is a link. It's the
$GLOBALS['LinkTagFmt'] that "bypasses" the PageExists, by
specifying the exact format that should be used for displaying
the link (as opposed to letting the LinkPage function decide).

This will probably work. But I'm pretty sure we'll soon
be adding some form of "automatically create targets" capability,
in which case you'll be able to specify something like:
This will automatically create the target category pages
as soon as someone saves a page containing a target link
in one of these groups. In other words, if someone writes
a page containing
then upon saving the page PmWiki will automatically create
"ProjectCategory.XYZ" if it doesn't already exist.
