My primary concern is that pages outside of the wiki have it, like on
the forums, as well as people's bookmarks.  I know a redirect can take
care of that, it's just a bit of a hassle.  It would also require us to
go through and fix a lot of little things like links.  Right now I would
rather focus efforts on getting the actual documentation pages up to
speed rather than moving perfectly usable and fairly often used pages
between the wikis.  I agree though, these pages are in the wrong place.
 I will move them at a later time if it's not a thorn in anybody's side
at the moment.
