Hm.. that looks more like what I had in mind when I posted, but allso quite a 
bit more overhead than rewriterules.
At least for me that has never written a product.

I will have to think about that one..
Would you care to elaborate a little bit on what the tradeoffs would be?

If I wanted my articles in many variants, ie. a large state space, I guess 
this way would be good?
