Joomla’s rewrite rules break server-status

I’ve noticed that we’d lost all of the munin monitoring for Joomla-based sites after switching on Joomla‘s internal URL rewriting. The default rules in the recommended .htaccess file block the access to the Apache’s server-status page. A simple:

# allow status
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/server-status

just above the last rule there fixes this problem.
