Please search through the mailing list. Someone explained nicely, how
rewrite rules that you probably copied from mongrel page...searches
for the existence of a file....it it finds the requested file...well
apache serves it..otherwise it assumes, a dynamic request and forwards
it to mongrel.

There was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs
were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary.
