Whoops, guess I should RTFM ;)

This is analogous to Squid's access control stuff, plus its
"redirector processes", which are arbitrary executables it starts up
(could be shell scripts, for example) which rewrite URLs before
they're proxied. Jigsaw could support this pretty easily for UNIX; a
redirector process just reads one URL per line and emits either a
blank line, meaning use the URL unchanged, or a new URL which can be
anything. It's convenient to use regexes in sed, awk, or perl for this
kind of thing.
