Indeed.  What we need is to set up the php script as the handler
for *all* urls under the root (there's some syntax for that),
and then grab the URL at the beginning of the php script
and use it to set the page, news, or whatever variable.
(If the URL is a page at the root, we'll set the page variable to
the local part of the URL; if the URL is a page in the 'news'
subdirectory, we set the 'news' variable instead, etc.
The php is a bit odd, it has the line 'switch(true) { ...',
and uses dynamic case labels.)

I can do the PHP but haven't bothered to learn the apache part
