Subject RE: mod_proxy patches for HTTP Header manipulation
Date Thu, 03 May 2001 00:10:01 GMT
we are planning to do something similar to this
we are developing a module which could set apache notes,
based on various things, these would append themselves to the
headers_in in the form X_NOTE_notename: value for the application
server.

good to know we aren't the only ones with the idea
