> Apache provides the function ap_construct_url(). Its purpose is:
>   char *ap_construct_url (pool *p, const char *uri, const request_rec *r) 
>     This function builds a fully qualified URI string from the path specified
>     by uri, using the information stored in the request record r to determine
>     the server name and port. The port number is not included in the string
>     if it is the same as the default port 80.
>     For example, imagine that the current request is directed to the virtual
>     server www.modperl.com at port 80. Then the following call will return
>     the string http://www.modperl.com/ index.html:
>         char *url = ap_construct_url(r->pool, "/index.html", r);
> This may be a solution to issue previously discussed about how to create a 
> full URL for purpose of doing a redirect.
> Even if not perfect, should be exposed as req.construct_url(). After all, the 
> Apache folks are more likely to get this correct and maintain it, better than 
> we can do our own version in Python.
