There is some built-in rewrite capability in the upcoming 2.7 release.

But it's quite trivial to make the needed helper. A simple 2 line perl
program does it nicely.. (add one line per rewrite)

#!/usr/bin/perl -p
BEGIN { $|=1; }
s%^ && next;

But be warned that the web server in this kind of setup doesn't realize
that the externally requested URL is quite different from it's own view
of the URL and this will cause problems for any absolute urls found in
the content, and on redirections sent by the web server such as when you
request a folder without the traling /

Perl runs fine on both...
