Not to start a sub-thread or divert the course of the conversation, but... 

It strikes me that you could potentially save yourself a lot of headaches involving stripping out path information to generate a filename by having the things like galleries, polls, etc actually be proxied back to a Mongrel cluster running a small Rails app.  URLs like the ones you cited are handled near-natively by the Rails URL parsing mechanism.  Just judging from the names, it doesn't sound like it would be a horribly horrendous conversion process either.  

Alternatively, a few rewrite directives might be in order.  I'm by no means an expert and don't want to steer you the wrong way by giving flawed examples.

Just a thought.
