301 redirect for discontinued products!
This is a must to preserve inbound links and link juice. The idea to me would be to add a field on that product page that would enable us to specify where to redirect it.

CDSEO (explained here http://www.shoppingcart-program.com/got-the-stock-version-of-x-cart-then-google-is-penalizing-you/ ) already does this.

I've been able to get this to work by changing the url to the old one and deleting the url I want it to be, then adding it back. It would be great to just be able to add a url to the url history
