This could be accomplished via a Makefile type approach
(for update dependency for when something changes) and a
couple of really quickie/simple perl scripts in which you
associate a unique filename to a path/directory (via an
associative array in perl-lingo) and convert the filename
to its path and vice-versa.

Just a thought - keep up the Great work.
