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.
