SEs regularly traverse pages i've built with 302s...

it's worth noting that ASP's response.redirect uses the 302, which
given the number of splash skippers and moved pages i've built,
still hasn't slowed down the indexing spiders...

anyway, since they'd only come in on those URLs from pages with
the old links, i'd love to see the source of the URLs updated, but
that ain't happening...
