Ok, I've yanked all versions but how can I make the old-named gem page now link (or even be automatically redirected) to the renamed gem (at least while there is no other gem named Cartesian to take the place over)?

The whole point is to let the gem-user know that the gem has not been abandoned, it has only had is name changed. It would be even greater if the stats -- especially the total downloads -- could also be transfered.

Thanks in advance!
