Thanks zenmonkey, I have thought of the 301 option.
I guess what Im looking for is a way to implement url aliasing.
for instance as I understand it, in drupal a url has an internal name of "node-1", and can be assigned an alias such as "category/sub-page.htm" which then is populated to all internal links, although the internal name "node-1" is retained. Then if you at some point change it to "new-name-of-category/new-name.htm" it just works because the internal name was always "node-1" and you only changed the alias.
Is ther anyway to do something like this with silverstripe, for instance by building a new module for it, or is the issue that silverstripe does not use this seperation of machine name and human readable name, so aliasing is impossible?

You'd have to overload the Director which controls URL re-writes. Technically the system already parses the URL to convert it from a human/seo readable for to a system object.
I've never tried to overload a core method beyond some login forms and cms actions. I don't know where to point you to for help beyond te above documentation
