In general I agree, but I think the transformation from "" to "/"
must happen very early to avoid disturbing the cache code in the quick
handler. So I guess this could be only done in the post_read_request hook
of the proxy, but I don't think that we can trigger a redirect from this hook.
Provided my thoughts are not wrong, anybody an idea how to solve this?
