I agree that this is an interesting idea. I have a couple thoughts.
* There's something appealing about a collection of files that describe
how URLs are mapped to databases, static files, etc. This could serve as
a sort of site map for developers.
* I agree with Roger this might make sense for small projects. However,
for the small projects that I work on I more often need dynamic but not
persistent stuff, rather than static file serving. So this proposal
would appeal more to me if one could "mount" non-persistent object, e.g.
modules in the URL space (a la Bobo).
