Azure Url Rewriting

Just noticed the this on a Steve Marx blog post about PHP and Azure

_One thing we’ve enabled in the new CTP that’s somewhat buried in the rest of the announcements is support for the IIS URL Rewrite module. Using that, I got nice URLs like http://tweval.com/mix09-smarx.php to map to the uglier http://tweval.com/index.php?tag=mix09-smarx.

It is nice to see them reuse the IIS URL Rewrite (although I would rather have the mod rewrite file format instead of XML) module although with MVC + Routes this is probably a bit moot, but still nice to have for some more complicated scenarios.
