We could, but what do we gain?  pdo can get a apache redirect (I look
into that later), then users don't care.  Tools should use the
filelist.yaml we provide to find files (and as such links) for their
usage / if they want to verify they are there before setting a link.

If someone else wants to look, in dak.git its dak/make_changelog.py
