It'll need to be slightly more complicated than that since I see 
index.php holding the MVCnPHP controller for the admin and basic kernel 
stuff.  We should be able to use a single MVCnPHP command for handling 
handing off control to both procedural and OO-based plugins.  
Essentially the same concept, though, as your getPage.

No, I think that would be fine.  Intuitive and simple.  Question is 
would it work with PHP5/IIS?  Last I check this sort of URL rewriting 
caused nasty errors.
