Ummm, the new version doesn't say to put a full URL (complete with
"http://" string) in the rewrite rules -- at least, I wasn't intending
to imply that the "http://" was required.  I just wanted to make sure
the end user knows they have to put a url there and not a filesystem
path (a common mistake).

Anyway, I updated the page again -- see if it makes it clearer.
