Option to disable Canonical Redirects
|Reported by:||markjaquith||Owned by:||markjaquith|
While I'm really excited about canonical redirects, and they're much more conservative and reliable than previous iterations, there are still going to be people who have issues. Anyone whose REQUEST_URI isn't set correctly by their PHP setup (or fixed by WordPress) is going to have issues. It's likely to be a small minority, but for the minority affected, it's a rather catastrophic failure that may cause their site to be unavailable.
As of right now, you need a plugin to disable canonical redirects. I'm loathe to introduce options, but this might be a good case for one.
I know it's late to be introducing this, but it will likely make the release go more smoothly.
