Do we really need this?
As we know from Rich's lightning talk at the ApacheCon every directive
can be replaced by a rewrite rule :-).
Seriously, I wouldn't put too much effort in this. If we can get
some globbing easily and ease some of the migrations from mod_jk to
mod_proxy then this is cool. But IMHO if someone has more complex
stuff to solve he should use mod_rewrite. It seems to me like
the natural tool for this. Maybe we should remove something of the
'voodoo aura' of mod_rewrite.
