I think this could be done with some minimal modification of the
PagesOnDemand extension or, as Gary suggests, the
BoilerplateSelection extension. I think PagesOnDemand might be a bit
closer, since I think BoilerplateSelection takes the user to an edit
page, while PagesOnDemand takes them to a formatted page as if it was
always there. You'd have to write an extension that hooks into
PagesOnDemand, but I think it would be very easy to adapt the sample.
