What is the context of the redirect?

Are you just fetching something and providing it as is - i.e.
proxying, if so then mod_proxy would be your friend (ProxyPass and
ProxyPassReverse are very very handy)

Otherwise, presumbably you're executing some code to do something
and/or decided if you need to proxy the content, in which case it's a
bit trickier and you may need to use LWP or something to fetch the
data yourself.

I don't know of a mod_perl way to redirect to another server, but I'd
be interested to know if it was possible.
