  I don't think anyone can suggest that this was 'without need' ;-)

  I will put this onto my TODO, but it cannot be made a priority given the
other work I need to get done right away.

The plan:  Create a /lynx-dev/ specific error-document which will point to
/lynx-dev/index.phtml  - the beginning of this script can check to see if
the old location was in fact an old named directory and do a redirect.

  If anyone else has the time and PHP experience, let me know and I can
just add the Apache directives and let them write the quick PHP.
