even though this feature is 'way' off as you state below?

why not? i dont see how we're going to get better placement by 
re-rranging keywords in the URL.

Hey, I'm not trying to micro-manage here. I'm just leary of moving all 
of our shit to a system that no one except you fully understand yet. I 
mean, we worked on it together for like 4 days, and I barely know wtf is 
going on. I also understnad you're busy, we all are.. All the more 
important to be able to distribute the workload between more people than 
just you..

Not trying to be an asshole here towards you either, but you already 
knew that :)
