[pmwiki-users] Pagelist PTV wildcard usage? Possible? Opinions wanted on tagging system.

I'm beginning to think what I want isn't possible.

I've come close with something like:
$:tags='* weekly*' for the weekly pagelist.

However, I think I'll always have an issue because depending on where
the entry is made in the text field there may be a space before it,
after it, or before and after it. And since I can't have multiple
entries for the same PTV (well, PageListPlus could handle this) I need
to figure something out.

I'm thinking I need to enter all tags with something like a preceding
# or something.

Any opinions on this? Is # a bad idea? Is just having a preceding
character good enough? I believe it should be.

Then I could have something like $:tags=*#weekly* and
$:tags=*#biweekly* and the *#weekly* shouldn't pick up the #biweekly
