Sure -- this rule works on my test install. I put it into
owncloud/.htaccess, right after the 'RewriteEngine On' line:
RewriteRule ^shared(.*)$

thanks a lot, just done so!
Am I right that this will only give pretty URLs to the folder shared by you,
as that ID is attached to you?

Yes, I believe so. Others may share other files and folders, but we
don't have a generic method of providing pretty urls for any arbitrary
hash. Of course, pretty much all content will live under the SHARED
folder, so it does cover most use cases.

Couple of notes:

- If the hash changes (e.g. a new install, etc..) it'd have to be updated

There might be a way of making a plugin/extension that just provides a
read-only link to a SHARED/ folder (a bit cleaner, but would probably
require a bit of code to be written).

- Ordinary users can provide anonymous upload rights via a link

I don't think this is generally a problem, especially if it's just
upload to a particular folder and not edit/delete rights, but it's
something we should test out.

- Sharing a pretty URL could be easier

If one navigates to a folder under SHARED like QA/BSA, there are
options to share a link, but those options are designed for
compartmentalization and allowing narrow access -- great things for
personal data, but not what we want here :-)

What one can do is take a URL like:

and change it manually to:

The easiest fix would probably be to add a new link "Public URL" to
the file/folder-level options (currently: Rename, Download, Versions,
Share) that would properly-format a publicly-accessible url.
