ok.. from my understanding:
you can write rewrite rules in a .htaccess file and they will be applied
you can use rewrite to initate a reverse-proxy connection.
so a unwilling administrator can open up his network by a malicious user
that has access to a 'userdirectory' or somesuch on the main webserver.

Is this right chuck?
