We're going to be using this module to support mod_dav in a university
setting, with 30k potential users and hundreds of simultaneous sessions.  

It seems to me that running in reverse proxy mode as you suggest would
require one running instance per possible UID, which would be fine for
tens or even hundreds of users, but not for the number we have to support.

Am I understanding this reverse proxy concept properly?
