We should have those most-often-needed pages there, as they are not
going to collide with the new structure (I prefer directories too, makes
stuff more simple to maintain) - The pages would just contain a template
to "this page is moved to [insert new url here]", once there are no hits
to them in the logs anymore, we can remove them.

And I think the best fallback thing to do is to have the "404 Document
not found" -page be a site map:

        Oops, the page you are looking for is not found!

        Please, have a look below for the information you are looking

           * About the Gimp             * Download
             -short info blurb here       -short info blurb here

           * Learn to use Gimp!         * Get new plugins
             -short info blurb here       -short info blurb here

           * No good? Then why not visit our _main page_ and try looking
             around in there?

        If you came through a link from another website, 
        please be kind and inform the webmaster to update their 
        link! Thank you!
