[mapguide-users] Mapguide-Apache URL rewrite

My feeling is that #2 isn't going to work.  You may be able to set it up
with an external redirect, but I think trying to hide the URL will make
Fusion break as relative paths, etc will blow up.

There are other ways around this, such as creating your template under the
/gis folder and adjusting the paths, hard-coding your application-definition
(I think Fusion still looks for ApplicationDefinition.xml in the template
folder).  A bit of work though, and you lose the flexibility of being able
to change the application on the fly.  You could also look at embedding the
map in an iFrame or something similar?
