[development] .htaccess patch for 404 of Non-drupal files

It is worth including the change in this page http://drupal.org/node/56773
to the standard .htaccess we distribute?

This has two advantages:

a) Avoid a Drupal bootstrap for every 404 of these files.
b) Send a smaller number of bytes when this happen.

I believe the majority of sites would not want Drupal to handle 404 for these

I can make the patch if it has a chance of getting through.
