Would be a handy addition to the generic views which would allow you to redirect a URL to the get_absolute_url of an object.

This can be used in many situations, the most common being URL changes.

'/myoldurl/(?P<id>[0-9]+)/', 'django.views.generic.simple.redirect_to_absolute_url', {'pk': '%(id)s'}

Sounds like a good idea - want to try and write up an implementation?

Not clear this is a common enough use-case to require a function in Django, particularly given the function itself is so short to write.
