-1 from me as well, "Custom URL" just doesn't make as much sense. Then
again, I do see the issues with the word "Path" but "alias" should make
sense to most people.

So what about "URL alias" ? That would combine the best of both worlds,
IMO :)

i have had several people frown and ask what the heck we mean in the
posting UI by 'path alias'. Once I explain, they adore the feature and
suggest the alternative wording 'custom url'. So here is a patch which
changes the user facing name of this feature. Admin area is unchanged
and probably shouldn't be since the concept of an alias is more
important there.

-1 from me. The purist in me would see "custom URL" and would enter the
full URL: http://something.com/blah/, not the actual, um, "path alias"
that the thing is looking for. URL actually *means* something, and
that's "http://something/blah/" not "blah".
