Cool! Thanks for adding the "latest" URL.

It looks like this is implemented as an HTTP redirect, not an alias.
Would this work better as an alias? With a redirect, I think you get
less googlejuice, and when users are viewing these pages in a browser
and then copy the URL for sharing with other people or pasting in to
Stack Overflow answers or whatever, they end up getting the
version-specific URL, so the version-specific URLs are what end up
getting propagated into the world of discussion on the web.
