I kind of filed your post under "stuff to get back to". It's a pretty
big pile -- Sorry about that.
To be honest, I don't really care too much about alternatives to
mod_rewrite. Most php-sites are hosted on Apache -- Certainly anything
I've been working on for a while. Both ForceType and MultiViews are
Apache-extensions, and I guess I can't envision why anybody would have
Apache installed and _not_ being able to use mod_rewrite? Are there
any obvious benefits to that?
