[tahoe-dev] how to squeeze a CHK URI

Thanks!  You make all good points about the different things that  
could be included in URIs -- encoding params, filesize, and human- 
readable URI type.

I accidentally dramatized my interest in smaller URIs when I sent my  
earlier mail to tahoe-dev:


GNU Mailman line-wrapped the longer example URIs, resulting in broken  
hyperlinks on the web archive, in my mail reader (Apple Mail.app) and  
in Peter's mail reader Thunderbird.  How did it get represented in  
your emacs mail reader?

Hm..  I see that Mailman wrapped them at the "%" character.  I wonder  
what it does with long URLs that don't have funny chars in them?

Anyway, this demonstrates the reason why short URIs can be valuable.
