This says, that I want part of the job of httpd is to do rewrites from 
this instant until the server is stopped.  It's as if a part of httpd is 
just sitting there, able to do rewrites, but the switch for it is turned 
off to save power if it's not going to be used.

This says under which conditions I'm going to be wanting the rewriting 
to be done.

This says what rewriting to do.
> RewriteEngine Off
This says never mind, I didn't mean to hit the switch, let me turn it 
back off and turn off the rewriting engine so no rewriting will be done 
as httpd does it's job.
