I'm more concerned about links pointing to us from outside of
the LDP. I think most of the docs found within the LDP should
be ok. But you are right, it wouldn't hurt to check.

I just thought of something...the majority of docs effected by
this problem are those that moved from linuxdoc to docbook SGML,
so we have a fairly inclusive list already. I'll prepare the
redirects for those entries.
