Description Danny B. 2007-08-16 21:25:42 UTC
If user is saving the page as redirect to another page which already is redirect, he should get some kind of confirmation dialog like:

Warning: Double redirect creation.

The target [[Foo]] is already redirect to [[Bar]].

[Fix the target]   [Save anyway]

Note that a more frequent source of redirects is going to be changing an existing page (by move or manual redirect) to which other pages already redirect.
