I had to check this but it is not there, I think. But it should be not
important, I think. Because the sub-request does not run any handler and thus
this should be no problem. Or did I miss something?

Yes, this question I asked myself yesterday. I've put an aplog_error call into
the find_ct() function of mod_mime and discovered that it is actually _not_
called for proxy requests while it is (of course) for normal requests. Then
I'm decided that there will be some reason I don't see (because else the
mime_find_ct() wouldn't be needed in the past) and concentrated to just
_replace_ the existing functionality, i.e. finding out the mime type

Does anybody know why the type-checking hook is not called for proxy requests?
