mod_rewrite isn't involved. Apache has a "lookback" feature that "looks
back" through the URL until it finds an actual file it can execute,
which in this case is index.php. Unfortunately, it appears that Apache
believes the directory in which linked files are found is the *whole*

mod_rewrite might resolve this, but it isn't allowed on all servers. So
it's not a reliable solution.
