The obvious and most simple solution for this problem would be to not use
relative addressing on your site.  You can make this work even if you have
multiple back-end application servers by doing some creative proxying.  For
example, if you have two servers that serve up different areas of an app,

 ProxyPass /appArea1 http://app1.domain.tld/
 ProxyPassReverse /appArea1 http://app1.domain.tld/
 ProxyPass /appArea2 http://app2.domain.tld/
 ProxyPassReverse /appArea2 http://app2.domain.tld/

I don't know of any out-of-the-box solutions for doing textual
search/replace within the served code itself.  This seems like something
that someone would have written by now.  Anyone know where he could find
something like this?
