redirecting tags from "blah+blah" to "blah blah"

redirecting tags from "blah+blah" to "blah blah"

Short, concise description of the idea
Hyperlinks to, for example, "http://mercuryblue144.livejournal.com/tag/harry+potter" should redirect to "http://mercuryblue144.livejournal.com/tag/harry potter".

Full description of the idea
After the change from tags being "blah+blah" to tags being "blah blah", all the links to tags in the form "blah+blah" are broken links. Having all the links to the old form redirect to the new form would solve that.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Nobody will have to edit all their old posts to change links to tag "blah+blah" to tag "blah blah".
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I can't think of any, since it's already possible to redirect a link to a pre-name-change-token LJ to a post-name-change-token LJ.
