yes... but that example doesn't actually alter r->parsed_uri (in the C
request_rec).  it just instantiates a new object based on r->parsed_uri and
locally modifies it for use in a redirection.

by "mess" I meant setting that slot in the C request rec, which I'm not even
sure can be done in mp1, but who knows.  it's been 3.5 years since that was
written ;)

always best to use what works best :)

a friend regularly tells me I need something other than my current 1999
monitor, so maybe that first :)
