The only reason I had the rewrite in there (and I think it was
recommended to me years ago) was to prevent people or bots from calling
the non-ssl directories of the site with https and creating duplicates
in Google, etc. e.g. calling http://www.example.com/ and
https://www.example.com/ when my homepage doesn't need https.
I only needs https calls on my phpMyAdmin, webmail, facebookapp and site
admin subdirectories. I just wrote another email in the thread asking if
I should only do a rewrite if it's NOT those directories.
