You have a firewall for this purpose or you use apache rewrite rules for performing URL rewriting.Our host uses nginx, not apache. We can still do this w/ nginx configuration, but it means maintaining a configuration file rather than application code (which in my experience is more flexible/maintainable).
This issue is a configuration and not an application issue. So it basically does not belong into Zope. -aj
