Jacob, would this conform to a more MVC-style approach at content handling?
Also, a quick question: what about the overhead? (way I envision the
implementation is a checking incoming requests against an array of
stack<filters> and if it matches send it to the appropriate handler)
Every single request now has the burden of checking the correct
destination through a number of complicated steps (preg_match, etc.) -
even though most requests will probably pass through un-accosted
