BTW, I call Dibs on this plug-in! ;)  So no writing it in the next few hours
just because you're in a different time zone and already out of work for the
day. :p

I didn't think a plug-in was possible since I could not find a nearby hook,
but I just found template_redirect



No parameter. Executes before the determination of the template file to be
used to display the requested page. Useful for providing additional
templates based on request criteria. Example (pedagogical, not useful):
Redirect all requests to the all.php template file in the current themes'

function all_on_one () {
	include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/all.php');

add_action('template_redirect', 'all_on_one');

With that, as you suggest, I can redirect links in ALL of my old styles to a
301 page.  

Thanks for the push in that direction.
