Actually I need to update the patch. I was reading RFC 2616 the other
day and they specifically state that a proxy is not allowed to rewrite
URL paths.

I'm also not sure about the Location headers. I'll have to go back and
look to see what people are doing in terms of if they're setting
absolute or relative URI's. Theoretically, if they're relative then it
should work just fine.
