Try to fix outdated links?

I really do love this feature. It's great when I'm testing some .htaccess glitch so I purposefully do something stupid like visit http://www.mysite.com/stupid and discover that there is, in fact, a CP shop called 'stupid'. It's nice to think my visitors occasionally have as much fun.

Still, it does create some SEO problems when there are quite a few outdated -- and unfixable -- links floating around the webosphere. These all end up getting mapped to the cpshop root directory or homepage.  Not so good.

So it would be nice to have this feature realise it has failed and throw a 404. Perhaps a fourth option?  

Try real hard, but throw a 404 if cpshop can't find anything?

I know what you mean....I just have my cpshop configured to return to the root of my domain's index.
