Purely as an aside :

Redirecting a POST internally is not a problem, because it happens 
early, before Apache even starts to read the request body (so to speak).

Redirecting a POST externally (through a browser re-direct response) is 
more of a problem, because then the browser has to re-submit the entire 
POST a second time, and browsers are inconsistent about that.

But POST is not a problem with Virtual Hosts, because if your website is 
correctly structured, browser will be talking to the correct Host right
