Fuck that, give me full regexps :) Seriously - I'd like to be able to send
all requests for *.gif to /dev/null as that's what we do with our log file
processing scripts at the end of the day anyways.  I think it's when you get
to points like this when Plexus starts making a lot of sense (hee).  While
we're at it Redirect should use real regexps too... 

I think I'd rather see apache incorporate rather meaty features like content
negotiation and leave the frosting off for the time being.  If we wanted 
I'm sure we could make apache a full-featured and extremely configurable 
program, but then I'm afraid we'd end up with huge binaries.  Besides, we 
need to leave *something* for Netscape to build a business model on (Hi 
Rob! :)
