I think that writing a small php page which from an id move to the right
page should be quite simple, using a small table (or a csv file) and the
Location: HTTP header.
If needed I can write it in a few minutes :)
In this case, the code should only point to a location on a site, with a
given id, which in turn will redirect to the right page. If the page is
moved, only the table should be updated, so that new requests will be
redirected to the new page.
