Getting rid of .htaccess wasn't a matter of making things more
complicated.  MOST users had to create a mythweb.conf file for apache
already, so I just combined the two into a single file.  You're more
than welcome to continue to use your old .htaccess file.

The issues in svn seem to come from people not reading the install doc
about the necessary modules, and I *will* be trying to make things a
little clearer before .21 is released.  Other than the new compression
stuff (which requires 2 apache modules that are not enabled by default
in all distros), nothing else has changed in the file (I just
copied/pasted the .htaccess commands into the .conf file).

FYI, I've just commented out the two new "problem" sections in the
apache conf file and added a little more info to its comments.
