I'm not sure I completely agree on mod_rewrite being obsolete :)
However, I used to use examples of what not to do in mod_rewrite as the
first part of my apachecon mod_rewrite talk. If memory serves me right,
there was five or so examples of things done in mod_rewrite that were
best done elsewhere. I still think they serve as a good way of showing
what mod_rewrite is capable of and I'd be happy to dig them out and add
them to the docs if that'd be any help.
Should we just go ahead and make a "when not to use mod_rewrite guide"?
