If you don't use CGI.pm's redirect() then the script just needs to spit
out the following:
"Content-Type: text/html\nLocation: $url\n\n"
I haven't looked at (don't have access to) the source of the Perl script
in question, so just gave as many suggestions as I could think of. =)
I think the Apache config options I gave before are the best choice
though, given my understanding of the situation.

Won't that require replication of the rules at each Debian web mirror?
(I'm not exactly sure how you're intending to implement this.)
