Comment(by zooko):

 Argh!  I just encountered a new example of how the current Tahoe-LAFS caps
 are too long to be acceptable to most users.

 I had commented on the blog of (good security researcher) Nate Lawson --
 http://rdist.root.org/2009/12/30/side-channel-attacks-on-cryptographic-
 software/ -- and included a link to my klog, namely this link:

 http://testgrid.allmydata.org:3567/uri/URI:DIR2-RO:j74uhg25nwdpjpacl6rkat2yhm:kav7ijeft5h7r7rxdp5bgtlt3viv32yabqajkrdykozia5544jqa/wiki.html

 He edited my comment and replaced that link with this:

 http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2010-January/003476.html

 Thus changing my comment from linking to my blog to linking to my mailing
 list message, which is not what I had intended.

 I assume that Nate Lawson did this because the URL to my blog is too long
 and ugly.

 So this makes me feel renewed motivation to invent new Tahoe-LAFS caps
 which are substantially shorter than the current ones.
