okay, before anyone is about to aks his: 'how about user defined mappings'. 
sure: the example:
 save strings from an interface -> variable_set('my_map_1', $post['map1']);
 in the menu 
 function user_path_mapping_menu() {
  $items[] = array('title' => 'cool thing',
      'original_path' => ariable_get('my_map_1', $post['map1']),
      'original_replace' => array('%year' =>'$obj->year', ..., '%title' => 
'$obj->title'), // somehow get this from a ui too
      'callback' => 'user_path_mapping_show',
