That should be no problem for mod_rewrite. I can introduce a simple flag
additionally to R (redirect) like G (gone). But the question is: How should
mod_rewrite return, i.e. for R ist does a "return REDIRECT" which is API
compliant, but I think there are no other return values for GONE or for [nnn]
something sike "return DIRECT_HTTP_STATUS;".  So, how could it be programmed
with the current API?
