	I'll further clarify what I WANT to do...

	<Location ~ "^/(.*)/member.(.*)(.html|/(.*)?)$">
	   SetEnvIf Request_URI "^/(.*)/member.(.*)(.html|/(.*)?)$" MBRSHP=$2
	   require ldap-group cn=umg/%{MBRSHP},dc=xxx,dc=yyy:

	So, how to supply the information parsed from the URI as part of the
	argument to the require ldap-group directive *at REQUEST time*.   Is
	that %{xxx} resolution something that takes place at the time the
	request is being serviced and honored, or is it something that only
	applies as the configuration is being processed?

	I'm already using as a loaded module, if that makes
	any difference (to my advantage or disadvantage...)...
