- I played with it to make it work without conn_rec, but it doesnt
soudn very clean to me . the main reason is request_rec itself needs
conn_rec and also other conn_rec variables like lookup defaults. so
even if we  could make it work (which I am not 100% sure that it would
work) it wouldn't be an elegant solution.

what I meant was that  I might find similar functionality in mod_proxy
which does same thing. I am not planning to reuse it. but would use it
as a reference to create requests for mod-c-requester.

This is a very good alternative solution. I would proceed in this
direction if I cannot find any other way.
