I'm betting that the wiki can't do a 302 redirect, which would be
proper. I'm sure that something could be done to do an HTML "refresh"
an HTTP 302 redirect. The 302 redirect operates at a much lower layer
and is much easier on systems because clients don't have to process the
downloaded page. It uses less bandwidth too.

I got to thinking. I chose Apache / PHP because that's what I know
best. But there is no reason (that I know of) that would prevent the
same thing from being written in Python, or any other dynamic language
for that matter.
