We are usually NOT deploying a plain redirect to from HTTP to HTTPS because we
want users to become aware that they should be using HTTPS directly.  What we do
is we display a stub web page asking users to use HTTPS and redirecting them
after 30 seconds or so.  I'd prefer to recommend that instead of a transparent
redirect.  Any thoughts/arguments pro/con?
