Provided they have mod_rewrite enabled, or on a server you can do that on.

I'd more suggest that they should already have a tool box included on
every page to handle stuff like this. Also, if we're looking at
mod_rewrite, there could be a better way of handling it depending on
file structure. What would be wrong, after all, to just force all
traffic to go through that file, and have that file include the
requested one after it parses the data? Provided the POST and GET
aren't being overwritten, it shouldn't cause any issues (that I can
see, at least).
