Multiple .htaccess files.  The .htaccess file in the pwd overrules
those above it in the tree.  No local .htaccess file means look up the
tree until you find one.

".htaccess files (or "distributed configuration files") provide a way
to make configuration changes on a per-directory basis. A file,
containing one or more configuration directives, is placed in a
particular document directory, and the directives apply to that
directory, and all subdirectories thereof."
