 Argh! I was helping James in the earlier thread and should have caught

James, keep in mind that in a given context (e.g., a .htaccess file) all of
the directives are parsed and processed before being applied to the current
request. So, as Zimmi points out, having more than one RewriteEngine
doesn't make any sense. The same is true for RewriteBase.
