Use the API of to show where a url redirects to.

The service doesn't works only with certain url shorteners, based on a list, but with any url that redirects, in theory.
The sercvice counts only, up to the first 10 redirects, so if the service counts 10 redirects, DDG should try again with the 10th url and so on.

It would be nice if DDG showed the Web Of Trust (WOT) rating for the final link.

Good idea, but don't do the loop-until-done-redirecting thing -- it could create an infinite loop.
