That's brilliant.  A filter hook, I hadn't thought of that.  It is 
exactly what I'm looking for.   Thank you.

I'm not really concerned about the URI looking pretty, just that the end 
user doesn't have to do anything to make the page appear.

Is there a full list of hooks around?  I couldn't find anything to do 
with wp_list_pages on the Codex ... or does every function that returns 
output have a filter/hook attached to it?
