Well, somewhat cool IMHO.

Yeah, certainly not new.

The reason I said somewhat cool is because when you implement this
ErrorDocument bit on your own server, you get swamped with error logs (which
I have been unable to turn off - please correct me otherwise).  It is nice
functionality for the user, however.

The "right" way to implement this type of thing is with mod_rewrite or, even
better, apache_hooks, which I'm anxious to get my "hooks" into.  Albeit, not
as portable.
