Symbolic links are never a good idea for web pages, since it makes them
appear at different pages on the web site, since HTTP doesn't have the
concept of a symbolic link. This means that it will be included twice
in search engines, etc., which some engines might see as a way to try
to "pollute" the database with identical copies and stop you from

The best thing would be to put up a permanent redirect (301), but that
can't be done without .htaccess or similar tweaking, and we can't do
that. A small redirector page is probably the best solution.
