Actually, I didn't write that patch that is on hyperreal.  I did write
that exact same patch myself before discovering it was already done,
and I didn't have the pstrdup()'s in there.  Looks to me like the memory
is already allocated.  

How about adding a new function which handles the case where the
inherited method should be set to GET.  Something like:

   internal_redirect_get(char *new_uri, request_rec *r)

There are only 5 places where internal_redirect() is called.  mod_actions, 
mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_negotiation and once from http_request itself to 
do the custom error message response.  4 of these calls require that the
method be inherited.  Only the http_request call needs it to be forced
to GET.  I propose that the call in http_request.c be changed to
internal_redirect_get() and this function be added to http_request.c.
