Hi Jonathan,

I'm sure you're aware of the accessibility implications of server-side 
image maps and you have a valid reason for using these travesties of 
useability, so...

I'd recommend just running the unparsed URI past a regex - like

if( $r->args() =~/^(\d+),(\d+)$/ ){
    my ($x,$y)=($1,$2);
    # process server side map

If you think about it, any Apache:: module that processes image maps 
would only be doing that anyway, and the HTML spec for it isn't going to 
change except possibly to deprecate it.
