More than that, they took mice embryos (who like a lot of mammals only have a blue and green receptor, no red) and spliced the human gene for the red receptor into them, then they did tests with the baby mice to demonstrate that these super new mice could see red (where the normal mouse could not). ...

If this is just about the "core technology", eBay cannot lose. For an easy million they could get that core technology written again from scratch in no time at all. I would think like weeks.

This is exactly what mod_rewrite is for, you can put those directives in .htaccess, presuming it is available on the server which it probably is. I still can't post a link, but google "Rewrite .htaccess" and you will find a ton of how-to stuff. And the apache manual has documentation for it.
