It's on the todo list. The problem with using a cgi script to do redirects
is that it creates a point source of failure. Just because we will never
let master go down for long doesn't mean we couldn't lose net access to
it for a few days.

Along those lines, maybe we should more properly set up va as a backup for
master. Mirroring the archive there is only half the solution. At a minumum
we need to make sure that dinstall has everything it needs to run and mail
can be delivered.

Jason, what file should I use to generate the list of mirrors for doing
the redirects? The redirect script is already on master so only the
menus need to be created.
