Using such a package, I could build a dead-simple custom CMS, still use a database to keep track of metadata, and have proper job scheduling and event listeners instead, _and_ generate static HTML the way I would with a more common SSG. (What metadata? If webmentions got sent, things like that. Things that should run once, like when a post is first published.)
Seems it doesn't support query parameters, which makes sense, obviously. There's a popular and now abandoned package for pretty pagination URLs, but an extra route, a custom middleware and a custom paginator should do the trick just fine!
