Not quite sure why that would be. BlogIt only sets values for it's own 
$SearchPatterns ($SearchPatterns['blogit']) which should then only be 
applied if explicitly specified in the pagelist. I'll do some tests to 
see if I can identify what might be happening.

Not quite sure why/how other page stores would be affected -- not to say 
it doesn't, just that I'd be interested in why/how. As far as I can 
tell, I'm using the 'normal' mechanism to add page stores, and basically 
copied code from the wiki, and other cookbooks.

Also not clear how pagelists are affected. BlogIt itself makes heavy use 
of pagelists, and BlogIt's own template pages are stored in the Site 
group. Sounds to me as if there is a problem with cookbook interaction 
rather than something specifically wrong with BlogIt.

How would this cause any side-effects? Unless you mean the setting of a 
global variable, but even in that case, not sure why it would be the 
negative impact you're seeing. Either way, there's no reason for blogit 
to set global page/group variables -- not even sure why I did that, 
probably legacy from way back.

BlogIt initially started with this approach, but it caused a lot of 
problems with cache population, so I switched over to the cheaper 
solution above.
