Hrm ... http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/Announcement2.2.html says:

| This issue only affects installations using a Rewrite rule with the
| following characteristics:
|  - The RewriteRule allows the attacker to control the initial part
|    of the rewritten URL (for example if the substitution URL starts
|    with $1)
|  - The RewriteRule flags do NOT include any of the following flags:
|    Forbidden (F), Gone (G), or NoEscape (NE).

OpenPKG reads this as RewriteRule with "A or B", while everyone else
(or at least Bernhard Reiter, Heise Security and me) reads this as
RewriteRule with "A and B".

What's the right way to interpret the list of characteristics?
