The way pattern matching works should explain by itself though ;)

*I* was speaking for the project, maybe I'm too much implicated :/

Now I won't try to prove anything, I'm too much busy these day
unfortunately. I just used what I thought was the right tool. Same
system is used in _rewrite handler so why using another way to do it.
Btw, regexp was tried for _rewrite too and it would have slow the
process + make it more difficult to use .

Now I can remove this pattern matching from the code, but the problem
Jason raised will stay. Current system in trunk doesn't change
anything to the way vhosts are actually handled in 1.0.1, so the
problem Jason have is already in 1.0.1. What I see on the other hand
is that is running.  Also, I introduced the
X-Forwarded-Host especially for reverse-proxy and it should solve
