Bending with Path Deform

I'll ask this question here in a slightly different way than I did on Discreet's forums.

How can I make a cylinder animate by flowing down a path and then without moving on the path, bend in the middle 180 degrees?

I've set a WSM path deform which won't convert to an editable mesh.

Animating vertexes in the path causes the cylinder to move on the path and is impossible to control.

Any thoughts are appreciated and best regards,

its a good question. so you want it to follow using path deform and then on the middle of the path, you want to bend it.

Let me think and try doing that out. If I succeed I will email you.
I will be flying tomorrow, so don't expect an answer in two days.
