Maybe rare for URL shorteners. Internal redirects inside a web site or group 
of sites are a different matter: call me an old-grumpy-Mosaic-user if you 
like, but I usually add a body of the "if you are not redirected 
automatically click here" -type when I program redirects, I usually even 
include a meta tag - you never know how stupid the configuration on the 
server is where your script runs.
