Well, just my two cents, I think the core modules, should be exactly that.
The bare minimums to get a httpd daemon up and running.  Everything else is
luxury, and should be "an option". 

So, I think the mod_rewrite should fall into the 'optional' modules and be
included in the package, as well as in the conf file... maybe commented out
by default... but I think it should be included.
