I would love to see a redirect function. On occasion, we have to change names of products, or we update them to a new version, and the url is out there in the wild. It would be great to be able to create a redirect so the old link goes to the new product.

This would also allow bundles to be treated like products. I want the ability to post bundles alongside individual products. With a redirect option, a surrogate product page can be made for a bundle and the add-to-cart link can be redirected to the bundle. That way, from the customer side, a bundle would look just like a product until added to a cart. It would show up in searches and in category listings. When they click the add-to-cart button, it would be just like clicking the bundle link.
