 Status:       patch

Let's move drupal_goto and url to bootstrap and also add a conditional
call to i18n. Why i18n and not a full hook_url_rewrite? Things would
get ugly here 'cos of the ordering.

i18n uses this patch to redirect home page based on language.

This is firs of a serie of patches adding support for some i18n related

This patch:
- moves drupal_goto to bootstrap.inc, making it possible to use it from
the module_init, even for cached pages
- moves url() to bootstrap.inc, as it is needed by drupal_goto, and
includes a check for not to resolve path aliases when called from
bootstrap (it is not needed and would require including lot more stuff
from common.inc)
- adds a simple hook to call 'i18n_url_rewrite' from the function
'url()' , which allows outgoing urls to be rewrited, so some additional
info can be placed in the path.

I like this approach. First of all, it moves only a very little code
from common to bootstrap. Second, it does not introduce new init
mechanisms like all previous i18n revisions did. Third, the penalty for
the code in the case i18n is off, is incredibly small -- one if per
url() call.

Instead of writing a 3 line if() statement, you might use
module_invoke('i18n_url_rewrite', $path). that goes for your other
patches as well. improves readability slightly.

moshe, I tried and failed. This early you can not call module_invoke.
