As I recall there is very little difference between the code for 
"forward proxy" and the code for "reverse proxy", the key differences 
being to send a Proxy-Auth instead of Auth where appropriate, and other 
minor things.

Separating the module into two will just mean two modules with virtually 
identical code: a breeding ground for all sorts of problems.
