The R indicates an external redirect, meaning the client is asked to
refetch the resource at the new location (and you'll notice a change
in the client's URL-bar).  If you omit the R (which I would recommend
in this case), the server will fetch the content at the new location
and return it to the client as if it was at the old location.
