I can understand the dislike of the suggested url. My suggestion came 
from an attempt to keep things relatively simple, albeit with INFRA 
involvement. It would also minimise the slightly strange situation of 
one product appearing to have some sort of special status.

I take it that Brane is not suggesting that we redirect like this:
/bloodhound/(?!main).* to /bloodhound/main/products/BLOODHOUND

It looks to me like a bit of work has been in progress. For some reason 
we have a "Welcome to Trac 0.13dev" as our front page at the moment. Not 
so great for us!
