Please consider this...

<FilesMatch index\..*>

Request http://someserver/somepath/index.shtml/foo/bar/more

The FilesMatch tests 'more'.  That is not the 'file' served (index.shtml)
but we can't determine that it happens to be query_info because the file
is _not_ in our file system.

Agreed this needs to be documented, unless we decide to attempt this behavior
in spite of it's problems.  Options?

I'm thinking we 'generally' should drop duplicates, but that's a pretty deep
question where we might have more than one transformation by the same filter.
