Sorry, I wasn't clear in my earlier email.  I wasn't suggesting that you
take your existing script (step #2) and put it in config.php and leave the
rest of the steps with the pagelist etc.  I was suggesting that you take
steps #1 through 6 (the whole thing) and place it in a single markup:

(:mess_with_latestpage groupname varname:)

Then your script (triggered by the (:mess_with_latestpage ...:) markup)
will find the latest page in that group and output all the various markup
you are wanting to do.  Since it is a single markup rule you can easily put
it early enough to occur prior to the (:title ...:) markup and etc.

Be aware that you cannot dynamically create PTV-setting markup, so you'll
have to have some other way of doing that.if that's something you need...

For running a pagelist from PHP, check out how Hans did it in powertools.
