folks should keep in mind that the 6th part would still contain the  
rest of the URL (we just limit an explode on '/', so we get an array  
of at most 6 elements).  if you *desperately* needed to register  
different menu items, you could (with some limitations), and you'd  
still be able to get to the whole path via arg(X), even if some crazy  
URL ended up being 8 or 9 levels deep.
