A recipe I haven't updated in a while but still use actively,
Sitemapper [1], does exactly that. It maintains a sitemap that's
automatically updated and maintained when page edits are made. My main
use for the recipe is to automatically maintain multi-level navigation
for our department's sites [2], but it'll work fine just for the
backend as well.

The sitemap itself is maintained in markup as a nested tree of
unordered lists that's directly editable, and it even lets you refer
to the same page multiple times without problems. New pages (eg.
Group.Page) are added to the tree under the main page of their group
(Group.Group), if it exists, or under a catch-all "uncategorized"
label otherwise. Deletions also work automatically.
