Synopsis: %{REMOTE_USER} returns empty string during RewriteCond/RewriteRules evaluation

State-Changed-From-To: open-analyzed
State-Changed-By: dgaudet
State-Changed-When: Sat Feb 21 04:11:13 PST 1998
State-Changed-Why:
r->connection->user isn't set until a much later phase in processing.
mod_rewrite runs during the name translation phase and the user
isn't set until the auth phases.

I don't think there's a clean workaround to this one.  Maybe we
should just update the docs to remove REMOTE_USER as a value which
can be conditionalized.

Incidentally, apache 1.3 supports proxy authentication.
