RE: proxy question: URL with parameters
- For the record Apache::ProxyRewrite is a mod_perl solution, and it would probably be extremely quick to port it to mp2. At minimum, it might be a good place to start for your custom handler.

I think it's natural to wonder why you aren't using tools like mod_proxy
and mod_rewrite that specifically handle this problem and are widely
used. You didn't mention anything that those modules can't do in your
previous message. Many of us run a slim proxy server in front of
mod_perl, and avoid putting mod_perl into it so that we can avoid the
extra memory it would consume.
You have reasons for your choice, so that's fine, but the suggestions to
consider using mod_proxy were good suggestions given the information you
supplied. I don't really want to see blind advocacy of mod_perl.
