[wp-hackers] Rewrite hacking/recreation

I ran into this problem as well in 2.x. The problem with the approach  
outlined here is that WP looks at the original query string (not the  
rewritten string) and parses that with the internal rewrite engine.

In the past I've proposed being able to add a special token ("wp- 
ignore-internal-rules=1" or similar) so that WP would look at the GET  
string (modified by my rewrite rules) instead of the original query  
string, but this hasn't been met with much support.
