> The last is significant. Do we leave "this page has moved" stub pages (i.e. still cluttering the TitleIndex). Or do we move them, and live with dead links. I'm very un-keen on dead links in Trac itself. Maybe there is some way to rewrite all of those, at least?
You can leave indirections in place in Trac, like this:
I've done this a few times when I moved pages to better organise things.
I agree that it does leave some clutter in TitleIndex, that's
unfortunate, but I think it's worth it to have good organisation.
