Some ideas :

If the page names are all Etude*, you can use name=-Etude*

You could add to all other pages another category like [[!Original work]] and 
in the pagelist search for link=Category.OriginalWork.

If the full trail is not used for navigation, you can place something between 
the asterix "*" and the link "[[" -- anything will do, even %% or the null 
space [==] to exclude the link from the trail.

On PmWiki.org, we exclude a page from the cookbook listings by adding in the 
page __no_list__, for example (:comment __no_list__:) This way, we can filter 
out the pages containing this keyword with such a pagelist:

  (:pagelist [other parameters] -__no_list__ :)

You could use another keyword like __etude__ if you like.

Yes it will, but as you have order=$:Date, it is already slow, so I don't 
think you'll notice a difference.
