Why not just totally exclude public things from going into Catalyst  
at all?

You're meant to (and all the deployment guides recommend) just  
excluding normal public static files from Catalyst seeing at all.

BTW, auth doesn't have to be configured in .htaccess, in fact, I'd  
only do that if you have to, as re-reading htaccess files can end up  
fairly expensive.
