Dear Mr. Edison Aspert,

I am glad that I could help you.  It takes some time to figure out how to 
work with the Jigsaw API, but I think it is a good investment.

I understand your concerns about redirection to something that "does not 
even have a slash."  However, I think this case could indeed be an important 
distinction between the idea of Uniform Resource Identifier [URI] types: URN 
(name) versus URL (location).  These concepts and their terminology are 
described in detail in RFC 2616 (the HTTP/1.1 specification).

In the "does not even have a slash" redirection case you may be dealing with 
a URN and not a URL.  I have encountered this case in changing request 
parameters to CGI programs.

Anyways, I think we need to work on a common RedirectionFilter (after we 
finish working on the CookieFilter).

Truly yours,
John Philip Anderson
