 wp_page_menu. This functionality needs to be included in the next release.

 customized in the admin; the nav menus can.  So you don't need arguments
 to include or exclude certain pages, categories, etc., because all of that
 is done with the admin UI.
 While I can understand why this functionality may of been overlooked, it's
 just stupid to expect users to create multiple menus for menus with the
 same content. Say you wanted to reuse the header navigation menu for a
 site within the footer (breadcrumb-style), but want to exclude irrelevant
 menu items - you shouldn't have to create an entirely new menu.
