I am using name vhosts - I have several vhosts including www and edit 

www goes to a cluster of web servers but edit goes to only one of the web 
servers. The problem is that both www and edit point to the same tree on 
that server so there is ONE .htaccess file serving both vhosts (its 
the same application - Im just tying edit and create actions to one server so 
that image uploads work properly instead of being scattered across all 
servers - we can rsync later).

I also dont want to put rewrite instructions in the vhost files - thats a 
lot of files across a cluster of servers which I dont want to have to 
maintain if the application and/or URLs change.
