Exactly so.  Except I would probably use link= instead of a text
search, and have the pages appear in reverse chronological sequence:

    (:pagelist order=-$:PublicationDate link=Category.Published ... :)

Well, the whole reason I'm adding many of these into the core
(as opposed to leaving them for recipes) is that I'm convinced

but to use the Magazine itself to showcase some best practices and
cool approaches to collaboration with PmWiki.
