Yes. The majority of the hits are from search engines, fwiw. :)

However, we're also changing the current redirect from temporary to
permanent, so we're hoping that'll get the search engines to fall over
to the other thing.

I agree, doing that for a while, especially after having gotten the
redirect changed and landing the patches to remove references from our
docs should give us better info on where we stand currently.
