I think we can use wiki.python.org/ for hosting exception specific content.
E.g. http://wiki.python.org/moin/PrintFails needs a lot of love and care.

Microsoft actually has documentation for every single compiler and linker
error that ever existed. Not that we have the same amount of resources at
our disposal, but it is a nice concept.

Concerning the shortened url's - I'd go with trustworthiness over
compactness - http://python.org/s1 or http://python.org/s/1 would be better
than http://pyth.on/1 imo.
