 Erm... no.  You are missing the point.  The redirect itself could be the
 restricted information.

 No, it just doesn't make sense period.  You can't just execute modules in
 some arbitrary order that you try to make up bsaed on the order in the
 htaccess file.  That would be a horrible nightmare to maintain or debug.
 
 It really doesn't do anything to have a bunch of suspended PRs around that
 aren't going to get addressed because they don't make sense...
