Slightly broken regex there (the repetition operator should come inside
the capture), but I think that looks about right. You should also add
the [QSA] (query string append) flag to make sure that, well, the query
string gets appended :P

I'm no mod_rewrite expert by any stretch, but I have done almost exactly
what you're doing many times when setting up MediaWiki to have pretty
URLs. Its normal to do something like this:

    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ wiki/index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
