 Create a page, browse to it, edit it, change its slug, WP redirects to the
 old page's slug and serves a 404. Wasn't WP 2.1 or WP 2.2 supposed to make
 the redirect old slug feature built-in?

 Along the same lines, it would be sweet if instead of simply redirect old
 slugs, WP would redirect old urls. When the date changes, when the page
 parent changes, or when the permalink structure changes, the url changes
 but neither of WP, the redirect old slug plugin, the permalink redirect
 plugin, or anything else catches this.
