The URL to post that contains C++ in the subject are mangled as C.

I really like the feature that appends the mangled title to the post id since it enable to fast-read it.

But often I get fooled by a link being mangled as C and the original title means C++, or C# like this one : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1753189/c-multiple-types-in-one-declaration-error that means "C++ multiple types in one declaration error" ?

Would it be possible to include a sort of "stop-words" that would be specially mangled ?

For example c++ would be mangled to cpp, c# to csharp, ...
