Call me thick, but I'm not sure I understand the difference... Unless:

them to the latest?
Will it also " that are already near the approved permalink structure and
forces them to exactly match it?"
If so, me wants it! ;-)

It takes the links that are already near the approved permalink structure

That's not what I'm gunnin' for. My plugin is more:
"This plugin allows WP to accept old permalinks and redirect them to the
current permalink structure."
I'll have to call mine something completely different though to make sure
there is a distintion. I'm thinking 'No More 404!'. I can even edit one of
those sign carrying smilies and make a nice icon for it...
