or search engine expert isn't here right now to ask, but i can comment on
one of them.  google will index either style of url.  it's even willing to
index sites using conventional querystrings.  however, our logs have shown
that it indexes more ravenously the closer you get to a pure directory
structure.  we've also seen relevancy increase as we've approached the pure
directory structure.  i have no proof for these findings other than our own
experience here at work, but they're obvious enough for me to believe it to
be the case.
