WordPress has an internal rewriter... so yeah, it directs all
requests to index.php and figures it all out from the actually
requested URL. We used to have both mod_rewrite rewriting and
internal rewriting for PATHINFO permalinks, but there were
inconsistencies in behavior. Moving to the internal rewriter has
really been a big help.
