Why would you need this? I mean, the shortener can handle a URL with query strings. – Alex Jun 6 '13 at 12:07
@Alex: Well, to make the URL short and dynamic of course. Say I have the URL that points to,ADDE63,63C6DE,0‌​00000&chds=77500,5510000&chd=t:5510000,2790000,1990000,118000,1260000,77500,11500‌​0&chdl=Sagan%7CCox%7CFeynman. It would be useful to be able to do to get,ADDE63,63C6DE,0‌​00000&chds=77500,5510000&chd=t:5510000,2790000,1990000,118000,1260000,77500,11500‌​0&chdl=Sagan%7CCox%7CFeynman&chs=480x300. – Alix Axel Jun 6 '13 at 12:24
@Alex: That's just an example of course, there are many other valid ones (e-commerce catalog listings, ...). – Alix Axel Jun 6 '13 at 12:27
