It is good to see improvements to the MIDAS URLs. We have been successfully running
mhttpd behind an apache SSL/HTTPS proxy without these changes, but our case was very
limited to one experiment, one mhttpd behind one proxy. I hope to test these changes
in the near future at CERN, I guess we will hear if things broke. I am especialloy
worried about the function for "split mhttpd history generator" via "/History/URL".
I remember it was hard to get it right and I hope if this function did not survive
this update, it will be easy to resurrect.
