Domain is not working without www prefix in GAE

The current issue I am working on is to make my naked domain http://mydomain.com to redirect to http://www.mydomain.com in Google App Engine. With www prefix I have configured my domain. But my naked domain is not working. I just found on Google support site that they are no more supporting naked URLs for their app engine.

According to Google support:

I’d like to map my app to http://myurl.com (also known as a naked domain).

Due to recent changes, Google App Engine no longer supports mapping your app to a naked domain. If your domain registrar supports URL redirects, you can redirect from http://yourdomain.com to your app, which can be served from domains like http://www.yourdomain.com or http://appid.yourdomain.com.

For instructions on how to configure a redirect for your Google Apps domain, please see the article on URL forwarding.

Issue can be resolved if Google provides us IP address and we set a A record pointing to that IP address. But they dont. 🙁

If you guys have idea how naked domain can be configured with this URL Forwarding thing please feel free to share. I will also update if I got this problem resolved.
