Maybe the OP wanted to get redirected when he reaches a doc page through e.g. Google or a direct link, rather than a bookmark/history/manually-entered URL.  I usually get to the docs via Google, and either pick whatever version comes up, or edit the URL manually.  That might get in the way when users open a link for a specific version and get redirected, so it's not a really good idea.

You could even set keywords like 'pydoc' and 'py2doc' without relying on the history, and optionally they could supporting a search term too.

Or you could remove the annoyance by switching your code forward to Python 3 <wink>.
