If the implementation of ProxyRemote does everything you need, but it
doesn't allow for dynamic configuration, you should develop a patch
that allows it to call out to another module to determine the next

Or, add hooks to let mod_rewrite do it via setting some note.

I don't think you want to be in the business of duplicating this stuff
or trying to subvert the request during an input filter
