" MultiViews is used specifically when choosing
between a bunch of files that exist in the filesystem, but that have
different meta-data attached to them. You only have a single file, but
wish to process it in a bunch of different ways."

That's what I thought, though the brief explanation of MultiViewsMatch
Filters suggests something else.
I have a copy of the Apache Modules book and I'll have a dig through to see
if there is anything on this directive.

Cheers,

Ben

I haven't though your problem through in detail, but I don't think
this approach will work. MultiViews is used specifically when choosing
between a bunch of files that exist in the filesystem, but that have
different meta-data attached to them. You only have a single file, but
wish to process it in a bunch of different ways.
