in reply to Shortcut to Wolfram|Alpha [wolfram://]

Linking to Wolfram|Alpha may be somewhat fraught. Because its content and search algorithm is evolving the result of a particular search today may be quite different than performing the same search yesterday. Maybe that's not a major issue in general use, but it does provide a disincentive to use where a stable result from the link is desired. On the other hand, maybe that is no worse than linking some Wikipedia pages.

True laziness is hard work
