Using template families for redirects

I just promoted a site from one of my directories to it's own domain.  Of course within a day, Google found the site in my own directory.  Time to do some redirects.

So, I decided to make a new template family, "redirect," and add redirects into the templates.  It led me into a whole new realm of thinking - always good for me - and worked great.

I'll get over it but I wanted two features:

1. The option of copying the contents of my old templates into the new family.  There are probably some reasons not to do that but I can't think of them today.

2. In the title bar of the template editor page, I wanted it to say either "HTML\Simple" or "redirect\Simple."  With my short attention span and frequent interruptions I couldn’t tell which template family I was working on.
