ok, curiosity is killing me - what would your one-liner be, may I ask? 
I've tried to parse this kind of thing, what you might call 
"slash-delimited" query strings, but what to do if there is a slash in 
one of the values? backslash-escape it? convert it to a token? 

do something like the following (psuedo-code):

  parms = split('/', HTTP_PATH_INFO);
  for (i=0; i<count(parms); i+=2) {
    QUERY_PARAMS[parms[i]] = parms[i+1]

add in special acrobatics to deal with the escaped slashes and its a lot 
more than one line...?
