[development] One core, many distributions

I've only toyed with pathauto a little, but found it a bit quirky.  It liked 
to put '0' at the end of names, and the underscores in names is highly ugly.  
I'm also not overjoyed about the visable path list suddenly becoming 
gigantic.  If I have 1000 users, do I REALLY want 1000 visable path aliases 
listed in admin/path?  I don't. :-)

Either way, I think we can all agree that a "human-friendly URL-making thingie 
module" should be one of the reduced core modules, whichever it ends up 
being.  That's something to deal with later.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
