Last night we launched a new site on SS. It is our first experience with SS and it has been largely positive. Our biggest pain however, was support for hackable URLs. That is, URLs of the form

One of our developers had to modify the core in order to get hackable URLs working, but it's not pretty. Is there something we've missed? If not, are there any plans to incorporate hackable URLs into a future version of SS? It seems like a very important feature that's missing.

Friendly URLs are coming - there is lots of info about them if you search the forums and trac.

There is a branch in development in subversion too - your developers experience might be helpful in that department.
