[thelist] apache filters (win32)

Has anyone on the list had any luck getting mod_ext_filter in apache 2.0
(I'm on win32 which may be significant). The module is there in
modules/mod_ext_filter.so, but when I add the diretive to load it Apache
refuses to start.
I'd really like to play with this. Or is there another way to do something
similar (in mod_perl)? I want to put together a proxy that will relay my
requests on and do {whatever I care to do} to the response.

(I'm aware of all the ad blocking etc proxies and software out there -
that's not where I'm going with this. I want to do things like dump the
response to a file structure, relativeize urls, taly page weight, insert
or remove content (e.g script and link nodes) and so on )

the external filter seems like the right model - that way I can leave all
the http stuff to apache and just focus on the actual filtering.. and set
up multiple filters and maybe multiple proxies as needed.

thanks for any bone you can throw.
