The ECF FileTransfer API is currently 'blind' to redirects.  If the
underlying provider (e.g. Apache httpclient 3.0.1) understands redirects
and handles them properly/automatically then all would be well (the
current ECF provider using httpclient...i.e.
org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient does *not* handle
redirects in this manner...but it *could* because the httpclient impl
allows/supports this...it just doesn't yet check for redirect
response)...then all would be well.

We could also add new events to the API to support interactively making
a decision on redirects (e.g. IFileTransferRetrieveRedirectEvent), but
to this point this hasn't come up as a requirement so we've not
introduced it.
