Bug#272799: RewriteRules in Server Config Context

Package: apache2
Version: 2.0.51-2

The Apache 2 mod_rewrite reference claims RewriteEngine (http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewriteengine) & RewriteRule (http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewriterule) directives work in server config, virtual host, directory, & .htaccess contexts; however, I observe they don't seem to work in the server config context.

I'm running apache2-mpm-prefork 2.0.51-2.

These two lines have an effect from in a virtual host or .htaccess context:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule foo /bar

but no effect from in a server config context.

My goal is to get cgiwrap working by including this file in the server configuration: http://www.sfu.ca/~jdbates/cgiwrap/httpd.conf This file is from the Debian cgiwrap package.
