I'd also send a big w00t to Korbus for quick turnaround time.  

As people have pointed out, though, "short" is not always true.  "Simple 
path", however, would have much the same effect.  "Simple" often means 
"short", implicitly, but it doesn't have to be.  The whole idea of the alias 
is to make the URL "simpler" or "easier" to remember and type.

"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
