yep.. but thats true, and it isnt RFC compliant, and no one should be 
using it in a perfect world. but the problem is that it is a common 
config mistake, and I'm thinking there are 1000's of sites that are
working hapilly on 1.3.23,  that aren't going to work on 1.3.24

I don't think we should be forcing people into RFC compliance like this.
at the very least this should be done in post-config not at runtime.

so I'm -0.9 on it we should be opening the bag of cats. If you can 
explain to me what the bag is I'll be happy to open it.

BTW.. looking at mod-rewrite it seems to be doing location redirects on 
r->filename and they appear to be ok.. so I'm still not sure what is 
going on here to make mod_alias's redirects not work.
