The page array values are called "attributes", but I wasn't
necessarily limiting the "fields=" parameter to page attributes.
In other words, it may also be that we want to allow page variables
to appear here, as in:
## search for terms in pagenames and $:Summary
Yes, this would give us two different ways to select pages
based on page variables... but what's wrong with that? ;-)
I agree that a term other than "fields" would be better -- that's
all I could come up with on short notice. But I'm also not
intending to limit it to $page array values.
