It can be done. It was not done for two reasons:
1) then people will never update their bookmarks ;)

2) i'm not entirely sure everything is 1-1. In particular, I think
there may well be files left over from old versions of postgres in the
old one that people still link to. I guess they'd still just get a 404
in a different place (on the new site), so reason two holds much less
weight than the first one.
