Creating "Real" Page Hierarchies

I would like to use Confluence for Class documentation. Each "root" page within a Space will correspond to a given C++ Class (or any other language for that matter). Child pages of each parent page correspond to a function name or some other aspect of that class.

It appears Confluence only supports a flat page structure by default so all Child pages are actually being served from the root of the Space it resides in:

MySpace > MyClass links to "myspace/myclass" but MySpace > MyClass > MyFunction links to "myspace/myfunction" instead of "myspace/myclass/myfunction"

This means that if I have two classes with the same function name, only one page with that function name can exist.

Is there any way to change this behavior?

The short answer is, it can't be done. The long answer is here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-2524

It's a long-standing request that doesn't look like it will get implemented by Atlassian any time soon.
