What if you created a new link syntax/markup of [[!!Group.Page]] --
something that is related to categories but allows the specification
of a group along with the page.  Then in your pagelist you would
search for the link and also for the *text* (or key word) of
"[[!!Group.Page]]".  Pages that were regular (non-tag) links would be
ruled out by the key-word search while the optimized search for links
would still exist so you wouldn't be slowing everything down by just a
key-word search...

You *may* have to change how pmwiki divides up words -- it may strip
out non-alphabetic or something like that...

I haven't been following this thread really closely, so if this is
totally off topic, just ignore it...
