If you are using mod_rewrite then you're using a hack.  End of!

Fifteen years ago, mod_rewrite was a fantastically versatile tool.
People started using it as a pseudo-programming language based
on GOTO (aka RewriteRule) and single-IF (aka RewriteCond),
and a bunch of arcane side-effects (Flags).

Since then, configuration has evolved, and less hackish alternatives
exist for most mod_rewrite applications (and for simple non-hackish
rewriting, mod_alias serves nicely).  Feature creep in
ProxyPass(Match) is one aspect of that.

Do you have a usage case where you can't fix it by just dropping
