[wp-hackers] Map a custom url to its content

There's a really useful plugin called "Fake Page 2" that may help with that.

it creates a new class FakePage() which you can call from your plugin/theme
with any slug, title, and content. The only weakness I see in it is that you
can't set the page template anywhere that I can see, so it will use your
page.php template for formatting. I've seen it used successfully in a couple
of plugins - G-Lock Double Opt-in Manager has a good implementation of it
for responding to submitted form data.

> http://www.myblog.com/my-app-reserves-this-url-automatically/
> Visitng the URL generates shows a form. This web page is not a "page" of

> Generating this page should not require the user to create a page or post
