The nice thing about lua, in addition to being lightweight, is that most of
the url mapping/rewriting can be simple lua statements.

<Lua fixups>
if string.match(r.uri, '/something') then
     r.filename = '/www/that/path'

And if the more "complicated" modules had a little lua "glue":

if string.match(r.uri, '/something') then
     mod_cache:cacheable( r )

If one were so inclined, the entire configuration could be lua.  Just define
and register these functions that need to run per request.
