Yep, spline unwrap. Fast forward about 7 minutes to see it in action.

Thats what I was looking for.
Now, to figure out how to use it ...
on first try it gave me a mess on my object

I think I got it.

I need to pick an edge that goes all the way through. export it as a line and then select it from the spline unwrap menu.
Evantually it seems to work okay after some manual tweaks.
