The correct solution for getting/setting the group and 
pagename in config.php is already given at 

    ## Get the group and page name
    $pagename = ResolvePageName($pagename);
    $page = PageVar($pagename, '$FullName');
    $group = PageVar($pagename, '$Group');
    $name = PageVar($pagename, '$Name');

Note that ResolvePageName() will already strip a ".html" suffix from the
request url if it happens to exist.

The example given above doesn't cover partial pagenames -- i.e., where
a group is given without a page within a group.  It also doesn't honor
various configuration settings that affect page name formatting.
