OK, I can see this. That was misguided. However, it seems to me that the
mod_rewrite portion of this doc has so little explanation that it seems
like line noise to most beginners. The word "simple" (which, IMHO,
should *never* be in documentation, because it makes beginners feel
stupid, but that's a debate for another day.) definately does not apply
to this section. Although I've looked at this part of the doc many times
(and I'm not exactly a beginner) my eyes glaze over, and I have a very
hard time getting through it. I think that we could do better at making
these documents a little more beginner-friendly.
