------- Additional Comments From alan.harder@sun.com  2005-06-04 02:28 -------
My comment isn't related to mod_proxy, but a general comment about rewrite rules
similar to the ones shown here.  It seems difficult with mod_rewrite to pass
possibly-urlencoded parts of a path as a query parameter to a script.. example:

RewriteRule test/(.+)$ /phpinfo.php?mytest=$1 [QSA,L]

If the URL contains test/one%23two then the query string as seen by phpinfo.php
will contain a literal # and thus be truncated.  Urlencoded & can also cause
trouble.  A couple workarounds: use a RewriteCond on THE_REQUEST to pull out the
still-encoded part of the path that is desired and put mytest=%1 in the rule;
or, add RewriteMap escape int:escape in the server config and use
mytest=${escape:$1} in the rule.  The former makes for more complicated rules,
the latter requires server config change and can't be done just in .htaccess..
neither seem like a great approach.
Just curious, what is the "recommended" approach for a rule like this?  Would be
great if escape function was always available, without a special rewritemap.
