With Apache httpd's mod_rewrite, mod_proxy, mod_headers, etc.., you can do all kinds of 
manipulations of URLs, headers and cookies.
But when you start along that path, sooner or later you will find yourself in a situation

where the next small requirement conflicts with the ones you had before, and/or your 
configuration becomes really hard to understand and maintain.
Also, each of these manipulations costs some time, in development and testing, and later 
in the server's CPU time.
So before I start down that path, I usually have a really good look at /why/ I need to do

that, and if I cannot cure the original disease, rather than the symptom.
For example, why can the original application not be at "/bar" instead of "/foo" ?
