As I understand it, ProxyPass does exactly the opposite. It maps local
requests to a remote server, what I want is to map remote requests to
local files (or to the local server, or to any server, whatever is
possible and easy to implement).

However, as you mentioned, it is possible with mod_rewrite. It looks
powerful enough to even redirect requests back to the original server if
the requested file isn't available locally, but I'm not sure about that
(that was one of the reasons I didn't look at this module before, I
didn't know it was so advanced). 

Anyway, thank you for your quick reaction. Your support is much better
than that of many commercial companies :-)
