Apache manages per-request configuration for modules based on the
nested set of <VirtualHost>, <Directory>, <Location>, <If> etc.  that
match the incoming request.

If mod_rewrite or your own custom module just changes the URI in place
after the configuration has been determined, it doesn't change the
per-request configuration.

mod_proxy in 2.2 doesn't properly use per-request configuration, and
crawls through every ProxyPass every time.

Your module could send an internal redirect if it wanted the
per-request configuration to reflect the new URL.
