Uh. I'm not at *all* sure this is the case. As far as I am
aware, apache issues a 301, 302 or 303 as appropriate. To do
otherwise when a redirect is requested would place apache/tomcat
outside the HTTP specification, which must be A Bad Thing.
Aliases, on the other hand, should work internally, obviously..

Paul, wondering if he missed something.
