Sure, mod_backhand.  http://www.backhand.org/mod_backhand/

It should do exactly what you want... Once it is ported to 2.0 that is :-)  It
is actively maintained, and though provides a much simpler proxy pass (read:
more limited), it does process at least some 1.1 (e.g. chunked encoding).  And
as reverse proxying goes it _much_much_ smarter than mod_proxy.  It has
connection pooling and transparent keep alive upgrades on the back-side.  It
can proxy hundreds of requests from different clients over the same HTTP
session to a back-end server.
