Subject Non-file handlers
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 13:00:02 GMT
Hi all,

Historically, mod_proxy has done some nasty bending over backwards to try bypass the file
processing and directory walk inside httpd.

Ideally, there should be a sane way to make a request as "not a file request", which completely
bypasses all file handling, the directory walk, etc, with the expectation that the handler
is expecting this and knows what to do.

Would it make sense to add a flag to request_rec that means "bypass file handling for this
request"? Is there another way to do this?
