URL REWRITING IMPOSSIBLE?!?!?

Summary

URL REWRITING IMPOSSIBLE?!?!?

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Description of the issue

The way that the FileMaker API/Custom Web Publishing generates URL's for records is going to prevent this product from ever realizing it's potential.

example url:
http://site.com/browserecord.php?-action=browse&-recid=123549

URL rewriting works by matching given data (the recid) with a record from a database, and then rewriting the URL to match whatever criteria you need- for SEO purposes I need our URL's to read
http://site.com//

where part_number is equal to a column from a record in the database...

BUT THERES A CATCH!!!!

that recid is NOWHERE to be found in our database... so how the heck am I supposed to associate
a recid with a product?!?!?
