Custom URL Field

At the moment, the Title of a category is used in the URL. There are some cases when it would be beneficial to define the url independently of the title


Case 1: non latin characters in the title. If you have, for example, Japanese characters in a url, the url will behave poorly when copied and pasted. All of the japanese characters will be converted into numbers and % symbols.


Case 2: you prefer to control the case/hyphen convention of your urls. If your category is named Awesome Category, the url will convert to Awesome-Category. Perhaps you would rather it be awesomecategory or awesome_category.


Does anyone know of a way to define the URL independently of the category title?
