The task is in the trivial-to-easy range - configuring a somewhat  
common kind of proxy scenario. It's the kind of thing that I'd answer  
for free on IRC a half-dozen times a day. As I understand it, the  
customer feels that their application is secret in some way, and they  
want confidential tech support. The whole NDA business and everything.  
My value is my reputation with mod_rewrite.
