Yes, but a request for /foo/bar./other/some would become
/baz/bar.extension/other/some with your redirect directive. So may be
you should word that the string compared against the URL-path argument
of the directive must have a slash beyond the match in order to append
additional path information to the URL-argument of the directive.

But may be "Additional path information" may word that already if
you're defining additional path information as /path/info and not foo.
