This is actually one of the predefined options on the settings page. – scribu Mar 21 '11 at 16:33
@scribu: Did you downvote because of that? I understand its predefined. I'm looking deeper to see "How" its made. – Scott B Mar 21 '11 at 17:10
Yes. You select the option and the field is populated with the value tnorthcutt mentioned. You need to ask a question for that? If you really want to see how it's made, dive into wp-includes/rewrite.php. – scribu Mar 21 '11 at 18:15
