    MoinMoin - Cylce Content Macro

    Selects a pagename quote from CycleContent or a given page and cycles 
    it by the refresh rate given on the page e.g. #refresh 5 ExamplePage
    For an attachment from a cycled page of name MyPage use an absolute 
    name for the attachment e.g. {{attachment:MyPage/image.png}}


        It will look for list delimiters on the page in question.
        It will ignore anything that is not in an "*" list.
