It would be good to redirect for everything except whatever file the release
notification plugin uses (maybe http://gaim.sf.net/version.php?). But causing
the release notification plugin to display a gross error message for everyone
using Gaim is a bad thing.
Commenting out the redirect line until it can be fixed is probably a good idea.
