Would not the generic "store-and-forward" approach I sent last week help all
of these situations?  It effective turns any request into a "sendfiled"
response.  Let me do some checking and I may be able to just donate the
code, since it's basically a very hacked up mod_deflate crossed with
mod_xsendfile.  It works for us, but we don't use the stock proxy, so not
100% it will help if the frontend and backend pools are somehow "linked."
