There is already a redirection mechanism for the old Zope 3 bugtracker in

I was planning on using the same system as we used for the Zope 3 import.

Launchpad allows a "nickname" to be assigned to each bug report.  For
the Zope 3 bugs, we assigned "zope3dev-NNN" where NNN was the old bug
number.  Browsing to https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/zope3dev-NNN
takes the user to the appropriate Zope bug.  Jim then set up Apache
rewrite rules on www.zope.org to redirect the old bug URLs to
Launchpad using the nicknames.

The same will be done for your bug import, so it should be a simple
matter of copying and adjusting the existing rewrite rules on
www.zope.org to handle Zope 2 bugs too.
