I think the task of redirection and the task of generating a URL are 
quite different. the 'url' method is already quite magic in how it 
handles parameters, and I'd rather not spread this magic around to other 

I guess we could define somethhing like "self.redirect_url(parameters 
from url)" that does both but I find this kind of convenience risky; 
it's not like this is the above is that hard to type.
