Do you want to send a redirect to the browser (HTTP code 3xx)? If yes then it 
can be done in an access handler as well. If you simply want to send the 
document in /pathA or /pathB then I think you'd prefer something *before* the 
core map_to_storage handler, that means a PerlTransHandler or a 
PerlMapToStorageHandler since otherwise you'd need to fill out the finfo 
field by yourself, see

 http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/api/Apache2/RequestRec.html#C_finfo_

yes, something like this:

RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} gzip [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} deflate
RewriteRule ^(.*) /pathA/$1 [PT,L]

RewriteRule ^(.*) /pathB/$1 [PT,L]

or as an external redirect:

RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} gzip [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} deflate
RewriteRule ^(.*) /pathA/$1 [R,L]

RewriteRule ^(.*) /pathB/$1 [R,L]

Why do you think this wouldn't work?
