That was the first thing I tried. It was several moons ago, but if
memory serves, it didn't help the http/https portion of the redirect.

Yes, that is one technique.  The other technique is simply to set

(Apache 1.3:)
Listen 84
Port 80

(Apache 2.0:)
Listen 84
ServerName www.example.com:80

in the back-end httpd.conf.
