Well, permalink is a permanent link to a certain revision (oldid)
And has been in de sidebar for a while now and a specialpage-redirect
has been implemented in 1.18.
However a permanent link to a revision or a short link to the current
are two very different things.
Short-url intends to make a link to [[Article name]] available in a
especially useful for non-latin article names.
Permanent-url intends to make the same content available under a
location, the fact that the url (can ) be shorter is a side-effect.
If a page is modified (new revision), the permalink will be outdated.
...if a page recreated the permanent will no longer work at all.
* Imho a ShortUrl-specialpage extension is redundant as the few
saved with base64 instead of the page-id (not revision id) directly is
and only introduced a new number/variable into the mix of things to
keep track of
* Short page-id links already exist by using /?curid=<pageid>
* Pageid is not a reliable way to link to an "article" of a certain
