(I need) mod_proxy to be able to add headers

           Summary: (I need) mod_proxy to be able to add headers
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.25
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_proxy
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jhaar@trimble.co.nz


First a picture:

Internet == https ===> mod_proxy ===> http ===> OWA

Some products such as Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) look for a header:

Front-end-https: on

...to tell it that the reverse-proxy (mod_proxy in my case) is being
communicated to via https, so that it can change in runtime so that any explicit
HREFs it generates are also https instead of http. Of course you could argue
that OWA should just produce clean relative links - but we're talking Microsoft
here ;-)

Anyway, some of the other proxy servers on the market (M$ ISA and F5 BigIP) have
an option to add HTTP headers to proxy requests, so why not Apache?

Could such a feature be added to mod_proxy? This would affect both the 1.3 and
2.0 code...

e.g.

ProxyAddHeader "X-Jason: hello there"
ProxyAddHeader "Front-end-https: on"

Thanks!
