You will find that working with the 1.3 or the 2.0 API's are
quite easy. Some of the good news is that apache parses the
request for you, so you will be able to access the already-parsed
url without any extra work. 1.3 is adequately documented here:

Although you will find that looking at the headers and source
code of other apache modules may help.

2.0 is inadequately documented at this time, so depending on your
capability to learn from bad documentation and other people's source,
I recommend starting with 1.3.
