redirect.py should ignore broken redirects on non-empty pages
Open, LowPublicFeature

Description

I was approached today by @Amitie_10g regarding this edit of my bot. Technically a broken redirect was there so the bot tagged the page for deletion as programmed to do so. But the page had lots of contents too, so I wonder if we should make redirect.py ignore certain pages if page_size > $_bytes ?
