As a service provider, I'm happy to put up with screaming users
for a week or two while they fix their URLs, knowing that in the
long term everything speeds up. 

Maybe Randy could draw me a road sign, the circular type with
the words "No Sloppy URLs" crossed off. My 404 Not Found custom
page could then explain the problem and benefits of fixing it to
the users. I could even offer them the correct URL if I knew
what it was. Hey I'd be educating them !
