<tip type="web API for short urls" author="Chris Heilmann">
Qurl are one of the dime-a-dozen "shorter link" providers, but with a
twist. They offer a web API to generate the shortcut URLs on the fly,
which means you can use it in PHP or even AJAX with a proxy PHP to
shorten URLs in comments automatically.
