Dennis, I have absolutely no objections to any redirect rules that you
are volunteering to implement.  I, however, do not think they are
worth while, so I will not be spending any time on them.

and the AOOo has reasonable discretion with regard to timing.  It seems that cut-over can
be done as soon as ooo-site is ready enough to be the new live site.  And the subdomains
don't all have to cut over together and everything will still work.  A progressive, rolling
cut-over might even be in the cards.
