Thanks, that's a very handy feature!

Would you consider enabling "rewriting" of the default webpage URLs,
i.e. by searching the alias list prior to the dispatch table? This
could be controlled by a global setting (potential subtle user trap),
or on a per-alias basis with a special syntax like !ALIAS or ALIAS!
(in analogy to X! to drop CGI variables), but probably only for exact
matches to avoid redirection loops.

This would be useful for example to set default query parameters for
the /timeline webpage without modifications to the skin:

!/timeline → /timeline?y=all&n=50


/timeline! → /timeline?y=all&n=50
