Russ, you're correct regarding [R] but incorrect pertaining to [P] in
this case. He's rewriting to a local script so there's no need for
proxying. And as he requested, the client won't see the change.

However, I suspect he'll see a loop as this is in .htaccess and
further down the ruleset '.' is rewritten to index.php again.

Thomas, if you get a loop, add this line before your custom rule:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !index.php
