Good point.  :-)

It is possible code all links to call JavaScript to submit forms.  Therefore, each link would
require it's own form, and each link would in effect be a POST and not a GET.  Hovering the
mouse over a link would not show the URL in the bubble or status bar.

Also a good point.  :-)

It might be possible to encode the URL's in the forms in some way to hide the values, but
they could still be decoded by a determined person.
