does it need to be in the server ?, it can be done by redirecting
404 to a perl script. It'd be a lot easier to do fancy 404 recovery
in perl than inside Apache - the script could even have a table of
commonly screwed up URLs. Also, if you find a bad link that the
owner refuses to fix, you can redirect back to his site.. take that !
