In the case of the ProxyDirectory, this is simple: there is a
local-root attribute, that will be looked up when the request is
targeted explictly to the proxy itself. In general it's a good idea to
do the following:

a) create the "proxy" resource
b) set it's dlocal-root to "root"

Then you get all the /Admin stuff by querying directly the
''proxy''. For the MirrorDirectory, however, you have to use vrtual
hosts (VirtualHostResource) to acheieve the same kind of effect (ie
have the mirror on foo.company.com and the admin stufff on say
localhost.
