 From the docs:

'redirect|R  [=code]' (force redirect)
Prefix Substitution with http://thishost[:thisport]/ (which makes the 
new URL a URI) to force a external redirection. If no code is given, a 
HTTP response of 302 (MOVED TEMPORARILY) will be returned. If you want 
to use other response codes in the range 300-400, simply specify the 
appropriate number or use one of the following symbolic names: temp 
(default), permanent, seeother. Use this for rules to canonicalize the 
URL and return it to the client - to translate ``/~'' into ``/u/'', or 
to always append a slash to /u/user, etc.

So do the docs need to be updated to say: return arbitrary http code?

BTW, this does work.  patch withdrawn.  somebody needs to fix docs...
