 It looks like this was posted before Google's "crawlable AJAX" proposal
 had gotten much traffic,

 That presented the idea of a URL hash-bang, like Twitter uses now:
 twitter.com/#!/username. I think these are a better idea than using
 querystrings, since Google went live with hash-bangs but still suggests
 that querystring pages limit their parameters (here,

 Basically, the original suggestion:
 * /?%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

 ...might be better as:
 * /#!/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

 (The preceding slash is my own preference. In the event the querystring is
 used, I think it should stay [like "/?/$year%..."] The added slash would
 make an explicitly matchable pattern [the "?/"] & make it easy for default
 querystring permalinks to be preserved.)
