ok, so it may be weak, but that's not really my question. If you think it's
not so good, what steps have you taken beyond just the basic fusebox code
architecture, and what OTHER methods would you think of using if you were in
my situation.

I figured it would make sense to have all functions on one master page, but
I don't have a problem making separate pages. I'm just looking for what
people think is the best, or rather the better way of doing this, or if none
of that applies, simply a DIFFERENT way?

In a nutshell, you've just described the 'fusebox' method.  Originated
under Cold Fusion, there are
movements to port this style to PHP and ASP, and probably other platforms.

It's not bad, but personally, I think it's a bit weak in some cases -
we've taken it a step further in house,
but the idea is similar.

fusebox.org has more info on this style.
