Yes. I've been considering the same, but concluded it's a still a better
idea to move the full URLs below because

1.) at this point the links are broken anyway and the basename is the
only valuable part of the URL when looking for an actual document;
and the basename stays in place
2.) the archive.org links that replace them in another patch are waaaay too
long even for very large displays

However, even though I think this is perhaps marginally better, either
way works for me. Thus, unless you change your mind about it, I'll follow
up with a v2 that drops this patch and replaces the links in place.

Thank you
Lubo
