External link is not an option as you cannot generate the short url on 
the fly. ATM: The only workaroud is to place the shortcut under a tree 
that is hidden from pagepath, open that page so the url cache ( cooluri 
or realurl - doesn´t matter ) is filled and switching the page to 
shortcut mode. That way you can manage shortcut urls as editor. But once 
the url cache is emptied the links are gone and you have to respawn them 
by hand.

so file a vote for this please !
