books accessible via archive.org ids

The archive want to be able reference booki books by their archive ID. Raj suggests http://booki.cc/edit/<archive-ID>/bookId.epub but obviously the exact form of the URL doesn't matter.
If the book doesn't exist, booki would import it from the archive, then present it for editing.
If a booki book based on that archive book does exist, then that book's edit page is shown.
If there are many booki books based on the same archive book, I guess it just has to pick one.
The simplest thing as far as I can see would be for this to be a redirect, with the url being something like /_archive.org/whatever.
This is very close to the http://is-this-book-on.booki.cc/ thing suggested for #276, though that service differs in two ways: it wants to know that a book has been edited, not just imported, and it would probably prefer to redirect to the archive s3 servers rather than to booki if it can.
