Most browsers show the URL a link (a href) ist pointing to in the  
status bar if you hover over it with the mouse. Drupal does not do  
anything here. If you put something in your files directory and link  
to it, well, that is the URL (href). Why would you obscure this? And  
how is this about best practice?
