Unfortunately, Github can only deal with one CNAME, www.numpy.org. The
documentation recommends that one "redirect" the other domains, but
it's not clear exactly what it is referring to. Having an HTTP server
with an A record for numpy.scipy.org that just issues HTTP 301
redirects for everything? I can look into getting that set up.
