How to create "Breadcrumbs"?


Hello all,

I'm a veteran of JoS but new to CD. Been meaning to use it for a while, now that upgrade from Home to Pro is put me into high gear.

QUESTION
One very effective usability feature is what's called "breadcrumbs".

ex: 
Products >>  Paper >> Glossy Paper

It's basically a hierarchy of HOW the user got to this page.  Tells them immediately where they are.

Is there any way to easily automate this in CD?

Is there perhaps a way to use CityScript to refer to the parent directory, etc.?  Perhaps I can organize my site in this manner. (So, Products might have a PAPER subdirectory, which in turn has a Glossy Paper subdirectory).

Or is there another, easier, way to do this?

Any othe tips for automating nativation display?

I made them in PHP too. If you're interested, drop me a line.
