---------------------------------------

Hi Hoss,
I have seen your commit and I now understand the reason for the redirect pages (to also count
downloads by Google Analytics). As I also did GA tracking for webpages not long ago, there
is a better/more correct solution to track downloads. The trick is to add some javascript
to the source link that tells Google Analytics to create a "virtual pageview" when clicking
on the link. The virtual pageview is counted on a "virtual" URI (e.g., the current URL with
the redirect page, without http and hostname): http://support.google.com/googleanalytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=55529
In fact, the trick is to execute the analytics javascript on the link click and pass a "custom"
url instead the default one from the current page.
