Functions in mod_proxy_http are only called when you use Apache as
ReverseProxy. If you have not setup it as reverse proxy, it does not go into
this module. You should rather look into mod_proxy function proxy_trans()
where it checks if some proxy is there. Or maybe there is some better
location that I do not know.
