One way to maintain the old urls would be start versioning the new
documentation.  Thus, the 3.x release of phpmyadmin would have its
documentation living at http://www.phpmyadmin.net/documentation/3/ or
http://www.phpmyadmin.net/faq/3/en/ or
http://www.phpmyadmin.net/changelog/3/en/.  The mysql documentation has
been written this way -
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/index.html.  Apache documentation
uses similar url schema - http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ or

A good reference on (somewhat) related topic is w3.orgs "Cool URIs don't
change" <http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI>.
