Once other sites start making incoming links, though,
you have to do something, and it usually isn't
possible to get every maintainer of every incoming
link to fix theirs.

If you're just redirecting an old URL that you have
no intention of ever using again, be sure to use an
R in your RewriteRule directive, so the "right" and
"wrong" URLs don't look like duplicate content.

Here's an example from when I replaced all my GIFs
with PNGs:

RewriteRule (.*)\.gif $1.png [R]
