Currently in our environment we have reverse proxies connecting to  
client-cert-authenticated backends, and one of the things we can't do  
is this:

<VirtualHost ...>
   <Location /foo>
      ProxyPass https://some.where.back.there/foo
   <Location /bar>
      ProxyPass https://some.where.different/bar

where "https://some.where.back.there" and "https:// 
some.where.different" are authenticated by separate sets of client  
certs and separate CA certs.

We do some nasty php to get around this, it isn't ideal. It is nice to  
have though, and shouldn't block 2.4.
