Uuuh, yeah, it is.  I was just ignoring you. ;)  Seriously tho, yeah it's
a good feature and makes redirection something that non www-admin people
can do easily (editing their own files in their own filespace) without
needing to pester Jo Random Web-admin. [almost] anything that makes an
admin's life easier has to be a good thing.

be redirected to his new site]

There've been a few bugs raised in this new version, it's nice to be
thorough once in a while.  I personally get confused by version updates
that happen too quickly for me to really get down and try to make things

On a different note, I've done quite a bit of research on who's using Apache
and which versions of the server (and other servers) are out there.  The
user base is quite big (over 150 .com sites alone) and certainly
comprises far more people than are on this list.  There's also evidence to
suggest that people using Apache don't keep in step with new releases;  there
are quite a few pre-Apache/0.6.5's out there.  It would be nice to maintain
Apache's reputation and only release when we've taken a sensible amount of
time to review changes.  By which I mean at least another week.
