   Kevin Hughes sent the following - I invited him to join the list and said 
   I'd forward this.  I think the RedirectAll function could be cool if made 
   a little more general; I said I was working on a better imagemap script 
   (and that eventually that's something we might put into the server code),
   and that I thought his icons were fantastic.


Hmmm... I understand ReDirAll causes a single page (which has to be
located elsewhere) to be served up in response to *any* request.

If so, I've achieved a similar effect at the times I needed it with
trick config files (no UserDir, and no Aliases or ScriptAliases except
for a single "ScriptAlias / /.../cgi-bin/bounce.cgi" --- an advantage
of this is that bounce.cgi then gets the actual URL requested in
PATH_INFO, which allows it to, say, redirect to the corresponding page
on a mirror server).  I *believe* this does in fact trap all

Of course, even if trick config files do the job here, a separate
config directive might be easier on some people.  (Then again, perhaps
we could just ship a second sample srm.conf set up like this, and add
another page to Rob H.'s "how tos" section of the docs which says how
to use it).
