Unfortunately I've inherited a config with 75 instances of  
"RewriteEngine on", 305 instances of "RewriteRule", and 407 instances  
of "RewriteCond", in an large number of configuration files, so it's a  
bit late for "RewriteOptions inherit" at this stage :(

Giving the option to inherit or not inherit the rules themselves  
definitely makes sense, but attaching the behaviour of directives like  
RewriteLog to this option doesn't seem to make any sense at all.
