[wp-hackers] Why always absolute paths?

A fair point.  I guess in order for the migration to properly do this, the
export should replace any occurrence of the current domain with some sort of
"shortcode" style thing, and then an import replaces the "shortcode" with
the new domain (otherwise, an import won't know the difference between what
was an internal or external link on the previous domain).
