Dear Ralf,

Thanks for your advice - I have looked at your module and it looks very
powerful.  I am rather wary of using it though, as it makes my apache
binary nearly 20% bigger (184356->226840).  I haven't tested it out but
I guess that one would have to be careful about using it in httpd.conf;
as then each URL would be parsed which would make the server slower. 

I'm not very experienced with servers though - do you think my
reservations are important or not?

Thanks for any further advice

Michael Smith
