Sorry, got myself mixed up with regm[0], it's the entire match not a capture.

Once you have a trailing wildcard like that, this code will think the
entire request path was the prefix.

For "AliasMatch / /some/thing", a prefix of "/" makes sense but
nothing will ever be meaningful for the context document root.

Is there any AliasMatch that does produce a meaningul prefix and
context document root? It makes sense that it could never know.
