Big thanks to all the efforts being made and I'm glad to see things
are moving forward on this migration.

I have one concern / question.  Is it possible to redirect existing
URLs to the new one.  Forum posts have been referenced in numerous
places, both internally (within the forums) and externally.  If these
links break, it would be a great loss.  Google (and other search
engines) would eventually re-index, I suppose, so it may not be of
much concern.
