I may have to do some regression testing on other bits of code that
uses the site too.

 -the <get> in Ant's fetch.xml that pulls down the m2 ant tasks themselves.
 -the smartfrog components
Both of these use Sun's APIs; they may or may not follow redirs
automatically. Priority goes to the ant fetch.xml as we were planning
to release

While I celebrate load balancing and fault tolerance, and think one of
the advantages of HTTP over SOAP is the ability to include meaningful
response codes that trigger on followup actions, it is kind of
disruptive when a sudden change breaks all applications that depend on
the implicit architecture of an implementation.

To put it differently: if you are going to do redirects, start off
from the beginning with one that 302s to the same host, just to force
the clients to be redir
