True, but again, so easy to do! Just a different way of doing it.
Lets face it, everyone announces their NEW product as NEW :)

It's not so much a redirection script. The script itself is an interface
to a series of SQL queries (some are dynamically created by the users
interaction), a series if default display pages that can also be created by
the users individually, a database interface, and an authentication system.
Sure, none is "new and ground breaking" but the simplicity and the fuzzy
intelligence of the script is where the real magic is.
Simple configuration of a web server and results are returned based on the
URL and the user's access, but in reality the results don't actually exist
specifically for the user.
