Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_rewrite vs Content Management Systems

  So far, what you describe could be done by the file system.  You have your
"htdocs" directory, under that you have "kids" and "stacks" then under each
of those you have "Carnivore", "Canidae" and "Canis_lupus".  If an article
appears under both unchanged, you can save space by using symbolic links (or
shortcuts if you're under Windows).  I don't see where mod_rewrite comes in.
