Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier--it's been a very busy week,
but I'm trying to catch up this weekend.

Furthermore, htsearch will ignore the document if for some reason it
hasn't been purged yet, at least in the 3.2 code.
With the way the database worked in 3.1 and before, you *had* to
change DocIDs when you had a redirect. After all, the database was
keyed by the URL and you can't just change the key of the record in a
B-Tree. Now the main DocDB is keyed by DocID, but you still have to
keep an index of URL->DocID for htdig and you still don't want to
change the key there.
