Putting single-quotes around the date *might* allow spaced dates to work 

  (:pagelist name=Test.? if="expr date '{(ftime %Y%m%d)}'.. {=$:ts} && ! 
date INVALID {=$:ts}" $:ts=-:)

Also, I had no idea we could do 'date INVALID {=$"ts}', I also don't 
find it anywhere on the wiki. Guess I don't need a date validation 
routine now :)
