Why don't you use the robots.txt file and redirect them to a page the
generates a complete index of your products and a url to each product?
Create a page like this:
[query list=1 sql="select sku, name from products"]
sku].html">[sql-param sku]</a><br />
I think You have to figure out hot to keep this page out of the
search-engines, but that could probably be done with either the robots.txt
file or by setting a meta-header that expires the page...
