Is there a way I can make the bot detect a redirect,

the category on the new page? Or at least some easier way than looking
each page up separately and adding the category?
wikipedia.py will return a IsRedirectPage exception with the new page
title as exception text. If you catch the exception, read the text (try:
(..) except IsRedirectPage, e: print e.message) and get that page.
For use in category.py you could adapt line 354 and further (except
wikipedia.IsRedirectPage, arg:) to read that page name and act upon it.
Hopefully this answers your question.
