I wonder if phpbb has the same issues. The reason for rewrite though is
likely to have flat url's that can be used as external references for
individual messages, like that can be individually bookmarked (perhaps
even individual comments) and "restful". Yes, if it is was internal it
would be easier to achive, and rewrite rules open all sorts of
interesting issues :).
