Note that this patch broke certain RewriteRules out there, which proxy URLs 
with path parameters (http://foo/bar;param?query). It might be questionable 
if the Rules were written wrong in the first place, but they are broken by 
the update to 2.0.55 now.

For example, I have something like this (shortened):
RewriteMap e int:escape
RewriteRule ^/+(.*) \
    http://backend/${e:$1}?i=${e:%{REMOTE_ADDR}}%{ENV:NEW_QUERY} [P,NE]

If $1 contains a ';', it is escaped by the map to %3B but no longer 
unescaped by mod_proxy.

A possible solution would be, of course to be more careful with the rule 
(splitting at the ;). A more general solution would be to add ; to the safe 
T_OS_ESCAPE_PATH characters in gen_test_char.c. I'd prefer to do the latter 
but dunno if there may be problems on non-unices.

What do you think?
