Relegate old documentation in Google results

Description

This is a bit meta, but it's my single biggest gripe about PostGIS. :)

Currently many Google queries for PostGIS land at a page at http://postgis.refractions.net/documentation/manual-1.4/ . This is exasperating for anyone (surely the vast majority?) using a modern version of PostGIS.

It would be better to:

  • use robots.txt to disallow 1.4, or
  • add a header to each page (a la Postgres docs) saying "This page in other versions:"

Unless someone is going to actually contract Refractions and ask them to do it, this is not happening. I went through every stackoverflow entry I could and changed the URLs to add to our google-fu, but other than that, I don't know what there is we can do independently.

It does actually seem much better now, thankfully. I don't think I've seen a 1.4 result at the top of the results for ages.
