Sounds like a good idea!

According to Yahoo!, there are just 19 links to that particular page,
including 4 *internal* links (actually, *one* link in the article "Searching
with Sherlock Part 1" by Martin, but apparently that article can be reached
using 4 different URLs). Still, I agree that a 404 does not make a great
first impression...

(As for "possible": I think it would just be a line in .htaccess)
