[pmwiki-users] USe PTVs instead of directives (was (:title:) of (:include:) included pages overrides page title)

I fully support changing title, description, and similar to PTVs in the new
version of PM wiki.I think it is confusing having
(:Title yadda:)
and (:Title:yadda:)
Also it resolves the issue of which include comes first - as none do (being
PTVs), but they can be accessed in the normal PTV way from other pages.
The issue of setting a page title in GroupHeader for GroupFooter is harder,
but one could argue that this should not be done, title applies to a page,
not a group.
If the title is an expression calculated for each page perhaps we need a
specific way of setting it for a page from another page, eg (:*title:yadda:)
 (cf {*$:title} )
