My knowledge of the API is from JavaHL. In JavaHL, we have a callback
function where SVN can ask a Yes/No question. So I assume this is a
callback that already exists in SVN. Could you just use this existing
callback (with an appropriately worded Yes/No question)? Not sure
that makes it easier or not.

If you went with a setting, were you going to propose the redirect
feature is on by default? I think it needs to be, else it is not
worth doing in the first place.
