...Besides one of them getting marked as a duplicate, of course.

Questions have URLs based on the text of the title, with non-alphanumerics removed, upper-case letters downcased, and spaces converted to hyphens. This is clearly not an injective mapping, so what happens when there's a collision?

Just wondering.
