      Sigh... this issue has really come up often in all these years, so maybe
      I should really do something. Its a design issue, mostly. I can't place
      all the URLs that link to the "mysterious" URL because it could be many,
      and there might be a whole chain of redirections.

      What would be a solution?

      A small note like this?


      Broken links, ordered by link:
      http://archives.cnn.com/1999/US/12/08/king.assassination.01/
      error code: 404 (not found), linked from page(s):
      http://archives.cnn.com/1999/US/12/08/king.assassination.01
      (Attention: the URL above redirects)

      1 broken link(s) reported

      \_____ error code: 404 (not found)

      Or a different text, like

      (Attention: see "List of redirected URLs" to find out more about this URL")
      or
      (Attention: enable "List of redirected URLs" to find out more about this
      URL")
      with an internal link to the section that deals with that URL.

      Then I'll probably get many mails from people who disabled that list in
      the report but don't remember how to enable it :-(
