While that would be nice, in practice they do end up changing - and
many of the above mentioned sites are simply redirected straight to
the wiki so the only page that would have worked for the compatibility
redirect is the Index page for that project.

Given many of them are extremely old, and which nobody will be trying
to access anyway, we should go ahead and retire them (and as Volker
noted in another response to this thread, many of the compatibility
redirects we put in place are themselves broken because pages have
moved around both within and between the various wikis we host)
