I would prefer not having symlinks at all on the web pages, but rather
doing redirects (301) for the old address. The thing with symlinks are

several distinct pages, which adds to the server load, for instance
when a search engine is crawling through the pages.

Basically, I prefer to have /intl/xx/, with the previous links as
