I gotta admit I'm kind of perplexed here. The recipe in no way does  
what the title promises, and so without some explanatory text, I  
can't imagine what it's actually supposed to be doing. Additionally,  
it uses .* where it really should be using ^ and it uses (.*) where  
it should be using ... what exactly, I don't know, since the captured  
match isn't used, and THE_REQUEST is used rather than REQUEST_URI,  
thus requiring a rather more complicated match than necessary.

So ... what is this actually supposed to do, since it doesn't  
actually rewrite anything to feedburner, as the title claims?

Can you provide at least a little explanation, including a mention of  
what URL is meant to be rewritten to what other URL?

My inclination was to just delete it, since it isn't useful, but,  
since I have the mother of all headaches today, I'm willing to  
concede that I'm not in the best mood, and so am probably  
overreacting. Persuade me I am.
