Forgive me, I can't help playing peacemaker, and I really hope I don't
upset anyone.  Nick, I for one really appreciate what you've done for the
community.  But I don't think you understood the problem, which makes
attacking Daniel like that look kinda bad.  He's trying to rewrite
dynamically created HTML that he's already serving via mod_proxy.

I told him to write a Perl module to do this.  Only Joost pointed out
mod_proxy_html, which I didn't know about until now.  It looks like it
will help Daniel, and should be a darn sight quicker than a custom
mod_perl content handler.

We all get annoyed, but maybe we should be sure we know what the user is
talking about before we snipe at him.  Just a (hopefully) gentle reminder
that "community" means more than just a bunch of people doing the same
