Gallery2 rewrite rules

if you want i have written a ebuild that does the php-fpm patching and
copy's php-fpm startup script / config files into place. If you want i can
post it somewhere to let you download it. The only issue i had was you can't
have apache flag turned on because in the apache configure it never
generated the files needed to copy for start up etc. and apache is always
done last.
I was also looking at trying to get clean Gallery2 urls and gave up as i
never could find resources or get them done correctly.
