The plugin you seek already exists.  Check out RedirectPlugin

Subject: http forwards

I am reorganizing some pages in our in-house wiki and realized that it
invalidate any bookmarks created by other team members. I wonder if
there is
some easy way to have the old URLs forward to the new ones.

I'm thinking what I would do is create a page with the old name that
forwards to the new page. Short-term solution is to just include a link
the new page and a message saying "we moved it, so click here". But I
hoping to automate it a bit.

One possibility is to write a plugin; this I can easily do but would
a little time. Parameter would be the new page name. Output of the
would be an http refresh that loads the new page. That way the user
need to click on anything; old bookmarks continue to work.

Could the same thing be accomplished with interwiki links? Something
[forward:old page name] and have it output an http refresh tag?

Or is there an even better way to do this that I'm not thinking of?
