[typo] overriding Typo's .htaccess

Note the line about the secretcode in the querystring.  The pepper keeps
that secretcode when it requests it from the server, so it passes through
without looping.

The top level .htaccess does not in fact catch this for Typo URLs.  It does
catch it for other feeds I have in the .htaccess
