I found several problems with managing this. All links on the page CANNOT be
relative (i.e. HREF="filename.php/var/var/var" it must be
HREF="/filename.php/var/var/var" or with the full path. Otherwise your
browser will try to attach the filename to the end of the long querystring
you created.  Unless someone on this list knows of a way around that.

As for a form, say the resulting form of a searchbox. If you want the form
to be a 'GET' form so people can see the querystring I created a file which
made that happen. You POST to the form with a hidden variable in there
containing the actual destination. The code is here:

if (isset($frmaction)) {
    $qsarray = array();
    //build querystring
    while (list($key, $val) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS)) {
        if ($key != "frmaction") {
            if (is_array($val)) {
                while ($v = current($val)) {
                    $qsarray[] = $key . "/" . rawurlencode($v);
            } else {
                $qsarray[] = $key . "/" . rawurlencode($val);

    $querystring = implode("/", $qsarray);
    header("Location: $frmaction/$querystring");
