[wp-hackers] REQUEST_URI for IIS/Windows Perfected

Not to spam or anything, but with the recent discussions (mostly
started by me....) about request_uri and general IIS compatibility
with WordPress plugins and features, I've finally figured it out.

Basically, no matter what you do or where you look, IIS doesn't
understand the concept of URI rewrites, so no matter what happens,
it'll give you a physical path, and not the actual entry.

This method uses an ISAPI filter on top of the IIS engine to intercept
calls, note the original URI, then pass it along to the server


I took it for a test run with the most request_uri intensive plugin I
could find, Scott Yang's Permalink Redirect plugin, and it works a
dream. :-D

Once you set up your server with the files at the link, you don't have
to modify scripts to make request_uri work, it becomes as if you're on
Apache or another request_uri compatible serevr in every aspect and
can be used as such.

Please let me know what you guys think or if you have any suggestions
or ideas or complaints....
