All you need to change is the mapping between URLs and internal file
names to achieve this. For this particular mapping, the following
ought to be enough:

$PageNameChars = '[:alnum:]';
$MakePageNamePatterns, array(
  "/'/" => '',
  "/[^$PageNameChars]+/" => ' ',
  '/((^|[^\\w])\\w)/e' => "strtoupper('$1')",
  '/ /' => '');
$EnablePathInfo = 1; # makes the following a little simpler
$FmtPV['$PageUrl'] = 'PUE("$ScriptUrl/".strtolower(
  preg_replace( "#(?<=[^/])[:upper:]#", "-$0", "$group/$name")))';

That should work with a normal PmWiki setup, provided that you have no
page names that include the - character. Note that this'll map a file
with an internal name like "Group.PageABC" to a url
