I can't believe I'm the only/first one asking this question; is the SS URL namespace completely flat? When I create a page and go to the Content->Meta-data tab to edit the URL, it presents me with a static portion (http://www.example.com/) and a variable portion. However it looks like the variable portion does not allow for subdirectories or any other way to group my pages together. For example, I can see having a "blog" page with the same name as an "ecommerce" page.
I would expect to do have URLs like ".../blog/issue1", ".../blog/issue2", ".../ecommerce/product1", ".../ecommerce/product2". Or even breaking blog entries up into year/month/day type URLs.
Am I missing something with SS? I realize that I could probably go through and make each URL unique just by adding enough description to it, but that gets increasingly tedious as the number of pages grows and is subject to human error. Almost every site in existence today works this way. What am I missing?!?
P.S. I searched for the answer to this question in both the forums and Trac but was unable to find anything.

search for sublevel or urls.
have a look at the discussion at:
seems to be 'hard to implement'...

Thanks for the great link to a ongoing discussion! I'm going to followup on that thread. I have no idea how I missed it - maybe because I didn't search for 'sublevel' URLs.

Thanks for the great link to a ongoing discussion!
And what a ongoing discussion it has been! Before we hear another round of why SilverStripe needs this. I like Sams post on the dev mailing list
Adding backslashes to URLSegments would be a lesson in pain.
And basically unless we find someone or a group willing to take it on Or a / few projects willing to finance to a extent the incredible amount of man hours involved this will likely stay firmly on the 'Nice to have..' list.
