Probably I am missing something or it is technically not possible, but anyway I
just want to describe a solution that could be quite simple if possible:

What about the idea to just direct all requests for anonscm.d.o to salsa and
redirect to alioth, if the target is not found (i.e. the repository was not
yet migrated)? Could this be done like described in [0] under "Search for pages
in more than one directory"?
