I decided to investigate where Apache decided that the request was to be
handled by the proxy, and change this from a simple noproxy / proxy
arrangement to three states - NONE, PROXY and REVERSE with the values 0,
1 and 2 respectively. Most of the code tests proxyreq for non zero
status, only the authenticate code cares whether it's REVERSE or PROXY.

The patches are attached.

Can you tell me if my solution is too simplistic? I have tested it, and
it seems to work, but a second opinion would be great.
