Lighthouse URLs

The current lighthouse url structure can use some improvements. Some suggestions:

Get rid of the ID from the slug Use just slugs for project names instead of ID-slug. For example current projects are http://[account].lighthouseapp.com/projects/[ID]-[project]. I know this works easily in Rails, but it's not too hard to allow for just the slug as the account should uniquely identify it.

Same for bins The same thing goes for bins. Currently my resolved bin is: http://[ACCOUNT].lighthouseapp.com/projects/[PROJECT_ID]-[PROJECT_N... . It should just be http://[ACCOUNT].lighthouseapp.com/projects/[PROJECT_NAME]/tickets/...resolved. The name of the bin along with the account name uniquely identifies the bin. That way when you pass someone a url they know what they're getting.

Drop the project for single project accounts Finally, if you only have one project (as most clients do), you should be able to leave off the "/projects/[ID or NAME]" completely. With one project you should be able to use http://[ACCOUNT].lighthouseapp.com/tickets (Ah, much better...)

Thanks!
