That's fine.  Placeholders that say "hay you're using a deprecated URL, 
here's redirect in 5 secs" in 3.0 would be fine with me.  In 3.1 the 
redirect could be after 30 secs and so on.  :)  My fear in you saying that 
you wanted to "maintain CGI compatibilty" was that moving to a different 
way of doing things (like Apache::ASP!) wouldn't be an option.
