/ "Roy T. Fielding" <fielding@gbiv.com> was heard to say:
| language.  If you can get LinkShare, Amazon.com, Yahoo!, and

| exclusive of redirects, then it should be standardized.

That certainly seems like the right answer to me. There are clearly a
number of technical possibilities, but if the feature isn't going to
be adopted by the major players in link tracking, it hardly seems
worth spending a lot of time arguing about which solution that won't
be used should be adopted.
