I'd prefer that we kept our article URLs the same. They're briefer as
evolt.org/article/12/123/ than as work.evolt.org/you/get/my/point/.

It can be justified that work.evolt.org is the first/default state of
evolt.org. Yes, the frontdoor might change, but articles/tips/lists are/will
be our most important content.
