 Good point.  Perhaps we should hide it if pretty permalinks aren't

 Adjusting the title post-publishing does not update the post slug, and I
 wouldn't recommend changing that.  Yes, we do have code to redirect to the

 craft custom post slugs that are more elegant than our one-size-fits-all-
 generated-from-the-title solution.

 We can, however, make the post slug interface better.  One of the things I
 really liked from Bryan Veloso's wp-admin mockups was that the post slug
 editing interface was in the context of the future URL of the post.
