It's not that clear to me what the right solution should be. Checkout
ap_proxy_http_process_response(). This function reads the -response- from the proxied
server and dummies up a request_rec to do so. So is this a valid approach or not? If it
is, then we do not need to do location/directory walks (and it is fine if
r->per_dir_config is NULL.
