The above comment is in relation to server/request.c file and functions defined
there. There is a static function make_sub_request(), which is obviously not
visible from the public API. In order to get to that function to contruct a
request, one has to call either of ap_sub_req_method_uri(),
ap_sub_req_lookup_dirent() or ap_sub_req_lookup_file(). However, all of these
are "canned" functions that already call either ap_run_quick_handler() or
ap_process_request_internal(), before giving the module's author a chance to
customise the request further (e.g. add more headers and such), before calling
any hooks.

If somehow make_sub_request() could be a public function ap_make_sub_request()
or something similar, all my issues would go away...
