Can we change /py3k/ to /3.x/ and redirect the old one to match?

Another idea is similar, but instead of doing /2.x/ always redirect the
the root of docs.python.org to the latest production release, so
right now /foo would redirect to /2.7/foo. This is even better for
maintaining links to the actual resource people meant to link
to. Could even include a header at the top of old versions saying that
"You are currently viewing the docs for 2.5. Click here to view the
docs for 2.7".
