It looks a little confusing, but that's how mod_rewrite is anyway ;)

I think, a red RewriteCond (or multiple boxes) is missing below the RewriteCond

More comments:

- I'd split it into two graphs; one for per-directory (which happens during the
current "File-path" arrow). and this one for server context. Side-note: it's
not a subrequest issued in directory context, but an internal redirect.

- Maybe we should split even more; like showing the API phases where the
rewrites can happen (directry vs. server). This may simplify the other graphs,
since they can focus on the ruleset.

- <More Rules> can be skipped with the [L] flag (and PT, too, but only in
server context)

- The [N] flag restarts the complete ruleset with the current file-or-uri

- on a completely different topic: is it possible to commit the graph original
, too (not only the resulting PNG)?

nice work!
