[pmwiki-users] Find out main page name from header page?

I want to construct a multilingual site where there is one page per 
language with the same name but in different language groups like De/, 
En/, ...
(I would prefer to have groups (and page names) starting with a lower 
case letter, but that's a different kettle of fish.)
I would rather not use the existing Cookbook recipes for multilingual 
sites as they have the different languages together in one file which 
IMHO is not so practical if the pages are long as in my case.

For the language switching I will use conditional markup which poses no 
problem if it is placed in the main part of the page, as then I can use 
OtherGroup.{$Name} for the same page in the other language.
But if I want to put the switching in the header, {$Name} in my case 
points to (Site.)PageHeader.

Is there a possibility to have a $Variable accessible from the 
PageHeader giving the name of the main page (the one with the text content)?

Thanks for tips. - Harald
