I thought about doing this, but I wasn't convinced it would solve the
problem. If htdig grabs a page with a bunch of links of the form I am
trying to avoid, won't it still add those URL's to the database,
regardless of what mod_rewrite is doing? Or will htdig somehow correct
those links when it retrieves the corresponding pages?
