 Replying to [comment:1 nacin]:
 > /archive/2010/09/29/ isn't a rewrite rule we support in core, so core
 won't actually consider it a post type archive...

 Thanks for replaying :)

 Well, let's forget about "archive/". The point is archives pages without
 posts shouldn't be redirected to a 404 page. I think we should offer a
 consistent archive navigation experience and explain to the user that this
 particular date doesn't have posts rather than send him to a 404 page.

 What do you think, nacin?
