For me, the DRY aspects of this are a huge win. If we can reduce the
XML framework to a simple set of redirects that can be optionally
turned on and off then new typo blogs can simply start up with the new
url scheme, and us old farts can continue to serve up the URLs we've
always served up.

And every time we add a new index, we can just write the appropriate
rxml files and be done.
