This is a long-standing issue for all web sites, so more than half a 
decade ago I suggested RunRev handle this as other important sites do, 
using redirects whenever significant URLs change:

<http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=2156>

The cost to RunRev and the community as a whole in not implementing 
redirects would seem far greater than the cost of adopting this common 
solution.
