Assuming we're fronting with Apache, I believe you can solve this
problem using 'mod_speling', which corrects capitalisation
automatically.  Nonetheless, this is a good idea (lowercase edict).

I don't have a problem with the extension idea.  It only causes
difficulties in python, right?  That is easy got around in most cases.

A site map is useful for helping us start thinking about content
properly.  However, I tend to make sitemaps dynamically generated to
avoid link rot (if you assume the top two levels of hierarchy are site
structure, you can just iterate over them and indent them according to
their depth).  Thoughts?
