mod_ext_filter has the ability to act as an input filter already committed
in the 2.1 (development) version.  It will probably get back-ported to
2.0, but not before the next release.  You may be able to use the updated
version of mod_ext_filter in an older apache, but I haven't checked to see
if there are any other necessary changes.  See:

Certainly mod_ext_filter isn't going to be the most efficient way to do
this, since it will be like running a cgi script on every request.
mod_rewrite or a custom-written module would be more efficient.
