I think I'd prefer something like

 	Site.RecipeListLocal (or Site.LocalRecipeList)

But that's cause I thought Site.RecipeList might be a good place to store 
a cached fallback list of recipe versions. OTOH, maybe that better belongs 
in PmWiki.RecipeList?

I guess it really doesn't matter, but I am sometimes confused as to what 
pages will be updated with a new distribution. For that purpose, I like 
having 'Local' in the name of pages that won't be modified.

OTOH, as most(?) of the pages in Site as I use it are local, maybe the 
naming convention should be changed so that pages coming with a PmWiki 
distribution get a certain kind of name.

Oh well, now I've gone completely off topic here :-)
