S: Independent free short URL service (for wiki pages)?
twitter & co. make those more or less doubtful short url services
popular, ref. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_shortening
As wiki URLs are as long as meaningful, there might be a need of short
references, e.g. when writing down a URL on paper.
Is there any awareness of this, or even an independent service for this?
This could even be part of the moinmoin wiki software (as a matter of fact,
if linking to a non-existing page, in many cases the corresponding match
is referenced, anyway), offering a short link for every page.
Thanks for any hints.
