Since this is very very very very very basic to do, does it makes sense to add 

Maybe what is better is a community patch (maybe more than a recipe) to do this?

I can think of a million such things to make for a very complex Site.whatever 
with a gazillion conditionals....  not saying a "good way" isn't possible, 
because it's almost "theme like"...just saying...

I think it's possible this stretches the PmWiki Philosophy a bit...  I mean the 
idea is to make it easy to do stuff like this with PmWiki, and such things could 
very well be up to the PmWiki administrator, and IMHO, are very easy already.

With that said, I've built some pretty wiz-bang corporate portals based on 
PmWiki... so there is a lot to share on how to do various things easily in 
PmWiki.  Maybe we just need more documentation, recipes and examples...??  (work 
for us, and not necessarily for Petko).
