I can think of a few things that would probably work.  You could make
the proxy requests yourself, with LWP.  You could hack the source of
mod_proxy.  You could run your auth translation code on the appserver,
if it's an apache server that you have access to.  You could also
write your code as an input filter, changing the auth credentials
before mod_proxy sees them.
