That allows you to turn:
Which of course is much more human readable and search engine friendly.
Joomla uses a very similar technique which I am familiar with. It does the same rewrite you can turn it on and off in the admin control panel. Component programmers can decide how their component will handle the url transformations. It should be built in for the core items within Drupal, such as articles.
You should also give Joomla a look if you are constrained to Drupal. They each have their own strengths, I prefer Joomla.

I recently had a site built in Drupal and found it to be very search engine friendly - after I'd made my SEO needs very clear to the developer. It's all in how it's set up. In the end, he was able to accommodate pretty much all of my needs.
There was a lot of misunderstanding between page titles and browser titles though. Some Drupal developers have not yet figured out how to include a field for custom browser titles, so all my page 'headings' defaulted to browser titles too. But it can be easily fixed. Well, I assume it was easy ;-)

For those that haven't used it, here are a few things that make your life really easy in Drupal.
1. Let's say you rename a page in drupal. The redirect module automatically creates the redirect for you, if you want.
2. The title of the page can automatically become the file name. It even has a clever config module to adjust how names are created.
3. Need an XML sitemap for the search bots? Install a module (30 seconds) and your sitemap is automatically created on the fly, in XML.
4. Want to submit your site automatically to Google? Another 30 seconds and it can do it automatically, or based on changes, etc.
5. Need a sitemap for your site? Another 30 seconds. You can define what pages show, and a slew of other options.
6. Want to take advantage of CSS aggregation? Another 30 seconds.
7. Need a blog, forum, RSS Feed, etc. etc. etc.? Another 90 seconds.
8. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of modules ready to be used for whatever you can dream up.
Drupal is awesome. It is secure. It has a very clean code base. And it is fast. Even the White House uses it, and you know how much traffic they get. And it does SEO very well. It is also free.
What's not to like?
I couldn't be happier with the results. If you can dream it up, Drupal can do it.
