[wp-hackers] get_page_link by page name/slug?

Yeah, Robin is right... I'm using it in the header/footer of my template
(outside of the loop).

Essentially I wanted a way to link to a page (not a post) regardless of the
permalink structure - but using the slug/name as the reference.

My code works fine, but was more curious if there was a more native way
using the WP-core code?
