------- Additional Comments From rpluem@apache.org  2006-07-03 20:53 -------
This is because the regular expressions get compiled during configuration time.
Doing so during runtime (which would be required when we would allow
backreferences / variables to be contained in the regex) would hit performance
hard. At least for the RewriteCond case there are some workarounds (not sure how
much performance these regexs are eating):

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}  ^%{OTHER_VARIABLE}$

can be replaced with

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}%{OTHER_VARIABLE} ^(.*)\1$

Basicly you must always try to transform your "logical" comparison to one with
the variable parts on the left side and a static regex on the right side. This
may not be always possible or might result in very expensive regex's on the
right side.
