Make sure post controller, and post system hooks get called on a redirect() #1162

At the moment, redirect() will completely overlook the possibility of a post controller/post system hooks


redirect() (with the use of exit) terminates script execution at any point of the application run flow. Skipping e.g. views, but running post hooks doesn't make sense, and while it's highly unlikely that somebody would want to use redirect() inside these hooks - it would be a disaster.
You can always create your own helper function to achieve the effect that you want, but it's not going into CI.
