I was reading through ``Cool URIs Don't Change'' to try to find a solution
to my problem, and it didn't really help.

Here is what I want to do.

I want to have a URL such as <http://www.example.com/~roconnor/Math1A/>
contain data for my current index of Quiz solutions for my Math1A class.

These will link to things like
<http://www.example.com/~roconnor/Fall2000/Math1A/Quiz4.sol>

I also think I should put the same index resource at
<http://www.example.com/~roconnor/Fall2000/Math1A/>

The problem is the following:  Next year say I teach Math 1A again.  So
I'll have a new index at <http://www.example.com/~roconnor/Math1A/>

I can maintain my old index at
<http://www.example.com/~roconnor/Fall2000/Math1A/>, but all the bookmarks
and links people have made from my original page will be pointing to the
wrong file.

This seems like a problem to me.

Thoughts?
