I don't know if you've looked at the Markup() code, but getting the '<lib'
stuff to work the same way that Markup() does it is a _real_ pain.  
I'd hate to re-implement it all over again just for PageStores, or to 
try to refactor Markup() and PageStore to use a common code library 
for this.  (I.e., that approach is much more work than I want.)

I might try a lighter version of it, though, that doesn't do all
of the just-in-time calculation that Markup() and BuildMarkupRules() 
currently do.  For compatibility reasons, though, I think we need
to keep $WikiLibDirs essentially the same as it is now, and just
provide a function to make it easier to manipulate $WikiLibDirs.
