I agree, it is not the prettiest name. I considered just /debian/, but
it seemed more likely that would conflict with something on someone's
web server.

Do note that there is nothing stopping an admin from linking /foo/ to
/debian-www/. They'll have to keep /debian-www/ around because of links
that will refer to it, but they can use whatever prettier url they can
come up with. So it's not too bad.

That's a pretty good idea, if it can be done without ugly timeouts in
redirect and with localisation still working.
