The tag functionality Fabian is working on should get you most of what
you are looking for. The difference is that the pages will still be
shown in the side pane as an index sorted by tags, not in a special
page. Having special pages is the way most online wikis do things, but
in a GUI program like zim having a separate widget in the interface is
a nicer solution.

However if you really want the list in a page as content we can think
of a plugin doing that once the tag functionality is available.
