for make it a little bit more flexible i had posted a patch (2 times the last for about 3
Weeks) for the sidemap to use the select statement in aggregation
i think when in the aggregation select match and action functionality work the need for redirect
where small
when out of this components a redirect is invoked that can be seen as a globalRedirect()
