In general the names of the generated files are pretty
long and ugly. It is often needed to past a link to the
documentation to a mailing list.

It could be nice to have "functionality" which will allow
to create "tinyurl" in one click.

    Although it's not as short as a tinyurl, I think the "redirect.html" functionality addresses this issue well enough. See:

    http://epydoc.sourceforge.net/faq.html#redirect

    An example:

    http://epydoc.sourceforge.net/api/redirect.html#epydoc.cli.HELP_TOPICS

    (i.e., you just use ".../redirect.html#<full-dotted-name>")

    I don't think the marginal benefit of being able to make tinyurl's a little quicker justifies the added clutter to the interface of adding a 'tinyurl' link to every page.
