Issue #158 resolved

redirect loops are generated on package rename

The issue arises when the new name is the same as the old name when normalized.

For example, acos_client -> acos-client.

    This should no longer be able to happen. PyPI now normalizes the simple page (e.g. "Django" is hosted at /simple/django/). This means that the URL will remain consistent between renames that don't change what the "normalized" form is and thus the redirects will also remain consistent and we won't end up in this redirect loop.
