that too! didn't even think about that, duh :)

i think having a limited htaccess support module would be great, and
for the most part, i think servers can handle a few extra stat calls
cached appropriately (doesn't the filesystem have caching type things,
or inotify/dnotify/kernel notifications, etc)

scaling that is probably a lot easier especially if it can be turned
on/off by location {} too.
