another one on users@, +1 to this approach and strong advice in the
manual to use one of the other flavors.

Rewriterule in per-server context could emit a once-per-restart

triggers a 403 from <Directory /> inadvertently, it will precede the
"permission denied by server configuration" in the error log.
