A number of people requested it, and since it doesn't make much 
difference to me either way, I complied.  The argument is that users 
(both real live ones and search engine spiders) will have an easier 
time understanding which parts of the URL to ignore when bookmarking, 
crawling, etc.

Yes, this happens.  #updateUrl: is sent to every visible component, and 
they can do whatever they like to the URL object.  Named anchors is an 
interesting use of this that I hadn't thought of - WAUrl doesn't know 
about them yet, but I'll add that ASAP.  And thanks, because I've been 
wondering how to best do named anchors for a long time, and that's a 
reasonable solution.
