No, rather I think it was because r->proxyreq was something he added after
he wrote the rest of the module, to prevent parse_uri() and
process_request() from mangling the URL, as they were doing. However, it
does make sense to check for the string as well, because r->proxyreq
simply signifies a proxy request, not necessarily one that mod_proxy can
handle. There could be other proxy modules.
