Comment (by nacin):

 What I'd like to do is simply make redirect_guess_404_permalink() actually
 hook into redirect_canonical(), I guess as a filter since it returns data.
 Then the filter can be removed.

 So instead of:
 if ( ! $redirect_url )
         $redirect_url = redirect_guess_404_permalink();

 Instead do:
 $redirect_url = apply_filters( 'redirect_guess_404_permalink',
 $redirect_url );
 And hook the function into there. Then it may be removed. Also, the filter
 name is lame -- perhaps can be more generic considering the positioning.
