By default the {(pagelist ...)} expression outputs  a CSV list of
page names, i.e fmt=csv is the default.
Other formats are not supported. Or you get confusing, ill defined
To support a different format, one would need to define it through
a custom function.
The only thing one can do with the CSV format is to set a custom
separator, with the sep= parameter.

{(pagelist group=People $CreatedBy=steph at acme.com sep=\n)}
should output page names on separate lines ('comma-separated' is
replaced by 'line separated' via the sep=\n parameter ).
