This is a good reason to add it as an optional local customization.  I
would likely enable this, if only because URL presentation is
important to me.  It doesn't matter why -- it's just something I'd
like to do, if possible.  And if PmWiki can do it, it's another reason
to sing its praises.  I vote yes!  :-)
