Heh. It's all relative. :-)

Definitely agree that the ability to add content on custom URLs is half-baked in WordPress at the moment.

I've put a *lot* of thought into URL design (http://blog.welldesignedurls.org; I plan to roll those posts into my personal blog when I have the time). There's a lot to consider/we can discuss on this topic not the least of which is "who do you make it scale" to a large number of URLs?  Drupal handles that part very poorly, for example.

Chat with ya off list.
