In 4309:

Support Forum: Redirect bbPress topic id shortlinks to new bbPress 2 permalinks.

bbPress 1 used topic ids to create shortlinks which were indexed by search engines and used in our own profile history. These links currently produce a 404 error.

The redirect_old_topic_id function uses a custom table to dereference the old topic's new post id rather than the postmeta table for performance reasons.

Fixes #1954.
