If you look at the navigation links on the wiki pages there is a TinyURL
link - in the default theme it is in the left sidebar in the middle of
the second group in the "Wiki" section.

Clicking this link will give a message, "A short link to this page is
http://wiki.list.org/x/17891729" in the case of the above page.

This is perhaps a bit easier than creating a tinyurl.com link.

Yes, Python will do the right thing. If the .py is newer than the .pyc,
it will use the .py and if it has permission, rewrite the .pyc for the
next time.
