donno. this doesn't simply settle with what I know about Apache's Alias
directive unless some other trick is afoot (like redirect in the
.htaccess file rather than in the server config or vice versa?)

I'll have to try that one... perhapts that's what I missed... I guess
the code looks also at the PATH_INFO environment var, rather than only
the GET path. that would indeed solve some of the mystery.

is this method mentioned in META? I'll try it tomorrow. if it works,
it's certainly lighter on resources than with the rewrite engine...
