That makes sense -- as we're only having issues with ";" to the best of 
my knowledge.

That said, we need to use the rewrite stuff shown in the bug (unless 
there's another way we're missing) to forward just the appropriate 
requests to Tomcat.  Is there a way we're missing (that would ideally be 
clearly documented...) to avoid running into issues with ";" when using 
mod_proxy and mod_rewrite as we are?  If not, then one is really needed 
for ";".
