I really don't understand what problem you are having. Apache
frequently uses "internal redirects" or subrequests to serve files.
This is a relatively light-weight operation and shouldn't be a concern
to anyone not on the absolute bleeding edge of performance
requirements for static file-serving. Passing the original path on as
PATH_INFO on the subrequest also seems completely expected.
