I'm not sure I yet understand your method. I'm thinking:

1. browser attempts connetion to server in URL
2. browser connection to web server intercepted by proxy
3. proxy stores original URL
4. proxy sends browser redirect to proxycannonical
5. browser connects to proxycannonical
6. proxycannonical ensures authentication
7. proxycannonical sends redirect to original URL
8. browser attempts connection to server in original URL

If that's right, #8 is the same as #1. So what makes the intercepting
proxy connect to the real server instead of sending a redirect? I guess
I've missed something but don't know what.
