I've been doing a lot of fooling around with mod_rewrite lately, and  
thought it might be worthwhile to write up a semi-tutorial on my site  
and share what I've learned with others, using what I've done as  

My question is:  Would it be unsafe to reveal what mod_rewrites I use  
on my site?  It's not as though my site has any state secrets or  
anything, but I would prefer to keep it (reasonably) safe from  
hackers.  Would revealing this in this way open the door to people  
messing with my site or my host's servers?
