Well, a lot of my setup depends on the fact that the default "home page
is named the same as the group" is what happens when one is creating a
new group.  I think the problem is more in the inconsistency, because
with the Main group, the home page is always HomePage (because that's
how it is when PmWiki is first installed) and with every other group it
is the group name (including Site.Site and PmWiki.PmWiki).  That means
that one has either to check for both all the time, or have one or the
other case fall through the cracks.

My personal preference would be to have Main.HomePage go away and make
it be Main.Main, at least in the default setup.
