Simplest might be to point a Path Handler (http://www.zope.org/Members/NIP/PathHandler) named 'generate' at your PDF generator script.
Also, a Script(Python) 'generate' containing: return traverse_subpath when called http://mysite.com/generate/foo/bar/baz returns: ['foo', 'bar', 'baz'] This could be useful for the URL re-writing you want.
