Noodl, what were you thinking?  Having a rewrite FAQ in the wiki, with 
commonly seen questions and answers (taken from #apache and the users 
With the main docs containing a few of these, but with a link to the 
wiki FAQ for more examples, whilst still containing the main essence of 
the current rewrite docs.

I have started to hack up some newer rewite docs pages, but will hold 
back on submitting anything until I have a better understanding of the 
topic itself.  These pages are rather a daunting read, let alone to 
write them.

Jorge, what did you have in mind exactly?  More descriptive text? Fewer 
This wiki has the potential to become even more productive.  When we 
first started populating it, there were a few growing pains as things 
were scattered about in some rather adhoc manner.
Now that there is sunstantially more material, and more people helping 
to maintain it, now maybe a good time to have an open discussion.  Not 
just on structure, but content, and usage to name but a few.

Do the 'categories' need renaming? They have already have two or three 
iterations, and have renamed mainly the same for the last four months or 
more.  But as others get involved maybe these need a further revision?
