[pmwiki-users] Could someone summarize the programmatic use of page lists?

I am working on a recipe that adds a lot of AJAX-y tools to the edit form —
things like searching/browsing pages/attachments, etc. — that rely heavily
on pagelists. I have cobbled together a working prototype by
reverse-engineering other recipes and going through the documentation on
pmwiki.org, but I have to admit I still do not really understand how or why
it works at all. I would really appreciate it if someone could explain, from
the beginning, how to build pagelists from a recipe.

Ideally, I would like to see a "hello world" recipe for recreating something
basic like "(:pagelist:)" or "(:pagelist group=Main:)" without actually
using the pagelist markup on a wiki page. Perhaps a recipe that takes a
directive like "(:pagelistexample:)" and returns the actual pagelist result.
Hopefully from there, I can deduce how to construct more elaborate

On another note, I would like to know how to create (both in markup and in a
recipe) a pagelist based on a page's (:keywords:).
