And mine, as well:
The fact that starting permalinks with a static string avoids problems
seems to get lost in the noise. But best practice is to use a static
string ('/blog/...', '/news/...', etc) *or* stick to the numeric
variable subsitutions. These help WordPress disambiguate from things
like categories that force it to perform extra checks.
