You are only really shaving the /docs/ there. If we were going to have
that kind of rewrite why not:

http://docs.postgresql.org/ -> points to /current/static/index.html

I can see the benefit to strategic use of mod_rewrite that enables us
to do funky stuff... maybe even some cool stuf like:

www.postgresql.org/show/changelog

Which would dynamically pull the changelog for the last day as an RSS
or even:


www.postgresql.org/search/pitr

Which would pull out the first three links for pitr from
search.postgresql.org.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
