This seems to be the knowledge of the wise, to not have *anything*
in an .htaccess file.

In fact, an upcoming column I'm writing will be showing how to have
".htaccess2" files in each directory, and on server startup, it
quickly walks the directories and interprets those with <Directory>
directives embedded, so they get parsed once.  Then you get nearly the
best of both worlds.  Downside is that "root" is now running them, not
the web User, so you have to trust those with write access to .htaccess2.
