Update slug upon page/post rename

    The idea is ok so long as the problems are worked out. I wouldn't use it unless it:
    1. redirected from old slug to new slug
    2. let me have the option to change slug or not change slug

    It would be useful for typos and whatnot. I have a few posts I'd love to change the permanent URL for because it's a typo, but I don't dare because of the links to the typo URL. If you could fix that, I'd love it.

    I know there's at least one plugin (Traffic Cop?) that allows you to create a permanent redirect from within WP, so such a thing is possible. That said, it's a better behavior that WP not change something when you want it changed as opposed to changing something when you didn't want it changed.

    I don't want this. I'd rather manually do it (if needed) rather than have loss of SEO and/or long page_slugs. I typically manually set my titles and slugs anyway because the long slugs suck, imo.

    Not enough traction, plugin territory.
