Stable usegalaxy.org links for main Tool Shed repositories?

Peter Cock
Hello all,

Having asked this before, I knew the friendly and memorable alias
http://usegalaxy.org/toolshed/ existed for the main Galaxy Tool Shed,
http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu

Currently tools there have a unique stable shareable URL like this:
http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/view/devteam/ncbi_blast_plus

(Due to the current frame based design, that redirects to a
less pleasant URL)

>From a little experimentation, the following style aliases also work:
http://usegalaxy.org/toolshed/view/devteam/ncbi_blast_plus

Is that deliberate? Can it be relied on, and are these style URLs
actually preference? If so, could the Tool Shed be enhanced
to allow a default stem for the URL (rather than the current
host name) to show these URLs instead?

(Personally I find the usegalaxy.org based URLs more presentable
compared to toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu which feels less permanent.)

Thanks,

Peter
