[Setup] Re: Selective Proxying, Plone + Apache on Mac OS X problem

Yes, you can normally just do it using the RewriteRules, but when you have 
to use ProxyPass instead (as I do because I have to proxy Plone to port 80) 
you can't select which areas you want to come from Plone and which from 
Apache as far as I know.  The whole site just gets proxied over to the Plone 
instance, it's a blanket-effect.  What I'm looking for is either a 
RewriteCond rule for the Proxy line in Apache, or some solution through 
Plone itself.  Or is this not doable?  Do I need to use two machines in this 
case because of my network restricting me to just using port 80 for internal
