Both links refer to the same storage. Should I keep moving everything

/pub/iconv and so on? Or any combination thereof? What do you think?

I frequently see people create a file that's a
symlink to the most recent version (for example,

This allows other sites to provide their users with a non-breaking
link to the latest version without needing to update their sites every
time a new version comes out.

At the same time, you can move around files without worrying about
these types of issues because you're only committing to having the
generic symlink stay in the same place.

BTW, if you go that route or make any other change, I can update the
PHP Manual to point at the new place for iconv and other files that
you're hosting. Let me know what you decide.
