[wp-hackers] Another cooky question about permalinks

Here is some code that I wrote to reconfigure permalinks for a specific
client's site, maybe you can find something of use in here?  You might want
to conditionally run some of the following code depending on what is the
current URL?

    $wp_rewrite->front = '/';

    $wp_rewrite->author_base = 'authors';
    $wp_rewrite->author_structure = '/authors/%author%';

    $wp_rewrite->tag_base = 'tags';
    $wp_rewrite->tag_structure = '/tags/%tag%';

    $wp_rewrite->category_base = 'categories';
    $wp_rewrite->category_structure = '/categories/%category%';

BTW, I've been meaning to post about the patchwork that is WordPress'
permalink handling to see if it could be improved in future versions. As it
is, it is a set of complex rules that are very hard to get right, and AFAIKT
there is no good way to create an override to load a page that isn't like
the rest of the pages that are already baked into the framework.  Would
there be any will on this list to entertain improvement in permalinks?
