      I need to do database-driven authentication so .htaccess won't cut it,
      but I think I can just pass those requests along (I can match by URL).

      Any reason why I shouldn't have Apache 1.3 listen only on 127.0.0.1?
      That way I could prevent a bypass of the reverse proxy.

      Thanks for the samples ... have set up an extra IP address for the
      reverse proxy (on the current server) for now and will do some experiments.
