unless someone finds a way to redirect en.wikipedia.org/Example
"Did you mean to type http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Example?
be automatically redirected there in five seconds."
It already redirects there, though we don't want to advertise that we
have a "link shortener" because the 404 page redirects.
Nobody should rely on that redirect for any purpose. The redirect is only
still there because someone forgot to remove the <meta> tag when the page
was last synced (<https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17316>).
