fantastic... both those suggestions worked well. 

However, the add-on question is that other query params didn't get "redirected" as well. I am guessing I have to "manually" add them to the redirect command just as I am adding the param('format') bit. However, since I don't know the params that might have been sent to the old URI, is there a way to send with the redirect request whatever params are in the query string?
