Milt. FWIW, directives into a .htaccess file are scoped as if they were into
a <Directory ...> tag...

And directories don't have much meaning when thinking about webapp...

It would be as specifying "ScriptAlias" in a directory, which doesn't make
much sense (scriptalias aliases an URL prefix with a directory, and enables
the +ExecCGI option).

The question would be, how would I be able to figure out your web
application deployment path from the .htaccess? I only have your local
directory on the drive...

Give some examples...
