Add support for this new short domain just for Template which should become the new default URL shortener.

It's powered by bit.ly so should just require the same configuration with the obvious changes.

The setup itself requires no actual code changes as the bitly API does all the work so that all URLs shortened by Template will automatically use the tmpl.at domain.

However, I want to ensure that bitly is now the default URL shortener. Obviously, this should only apply to new installations.

It's worth noting that it's not possible to force usage of the tmpl.at domain if user is authenticated.

I still want to look at how I can redirect tmpl.at to either my/template homepage or the chrome web store page.

I want to try creating a new bitly application with the URL http://neocotic.com/. With some changes to the bitly adapter and manifest (basically replacing http://bitly.com/robots.txt with http://neocotic.com/robots.txt) I will hopefully be able to redirect naked tmpl.at calls to http://neocotic.com/. Consumer ID etc. will also need to be updated for bitly.

This isn't the solution and apparently you cannot redirect the root domain without changing the DNS A record to point to a controlled web host and add some .htaccess workarounds. It seems easy enough but I don't want to run a server for this.

I'm going to change the client ID and secret as I want the bitly application to just be called Template and for its URL to be my homepage instead of bitly's.
