Sure.  The main page is one that is machine generated.  We have a
program that creates a PmWiki page.  On that page, we have a spot for
user augmented information,  It's included so that if the page doesn't
exist, that's fine... but if it does exist, it represents user data that
would be associated (included) on the generated page (the generated page
is recreated every day).

So... the idea is now we want PTVs on those pages.  PTVs that are from
the computer generated side of the fence, and the option to include PTVs
from the user augmented page that is included when present for that

I was thinking that a specially crafted pagelist might be able to
get data from:



Where UniqueID is the common piece.  BUT, realize that sometimes for a
particular PTV, the SAME named PTV could either be found in the
Generatedpage or be manually found from the Userpage.

Does that make better sense? (sorry if all I'm doing is confusing
