An idea for a WP site is to rewrite access to /wp-login.php with a 404, but if I access it with a /wp-loginabc to rewrite it back to the wp-login.php and give it plain access.
So, hiding /wp-login.php....

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/wp-login.php
RewriteRule ^ - [L,R=404]
RewriteRule "^wp-loginabc.php" "wp-login.php" [L]

The 1st part works. Bu the second on fails with a 404. I can imagine that I'm triggering processing the 1st rule agan with the new rewrite, but how do I avoid this?
It's Apache 2.2

You need to change the order of the rules. First you define that wp-login.php is a 404 and than you try to go to that url.
