Like I said, in most cases, we *don't* have a redirection from the
plt-scheme.org pages to racket-lang.org.  There's only a few with a
redirection, like docs.plt-scheme.org -- since that has always pointed
at the documentation for the recent release.

(And in that case you'll see that every page redirects to the
corresponding new page -- try to go to
http://docs.plt-scheme.org/guide and see where you end up.)

Is there any reason to set one up?  I've been reading a bunch of stuff
on the google webmaster tools thing that you pointed at and elsewhere,
and it seems like the only reason to do that is for sites with lots of
pages and/or sites with pages that are otherwise not linked from a
visible page.
