Exactly, and this is really an disadvantage by the storing pages in 
group.name / .pageindex concept cause the important criteria of listing 
pages  isn't always it's pagename, think of something like

    group=x $:Livecycle=Review $:Importance=Hight $:Status=-Closed

and all the other examples which has been made.

There's a Cookbook:SQLite where one feature is the indexing of ptv's. So 
if all the ptv's where indexed, search queries like the one above 
would't be a problem.

So my conclusion is that it we improve pagelist we should store page's 
in a database.
