A good CMS (Content Management System) would eliminate this problem
completely, particularly for a site map. The CMS can dynamically
generate the site map or index acording to the rules you set up when you
build the system.

CMSs range from free (ArsDigita, Zope) to affordable ($20-40,000 for
Microsoft CMS) to freaking crazy expensive ($250,000 + for Teamsite).
There is a CMS option for any site budget.
