So if I am following this correctly this would internally store the SF
number but externally number starting at 1 for Roundup numbers?  As
long as you still have www.python.org/sf/ still do its redirect
properly (or your suggestion of a query field) that seems good to me
as eventually we won't care too much about the SF numbers.
