Hmm, errors are already written into the errorlog. The rewritelog is mostly
useful for debugging purposes (both for code and rulesets). Therefore I'd
leave it in by default. But as said, running production sites, or webspace
providers, where the user don't have httpd.conf access probably want to strip
it out.
