In CVS head we have the stanza 'Post-Proxy-Type' which allows to run
different modules groups when receiving a reply from a home server.
Perhaps I didn't understand what you'd like to do, but I'd prefer not
running modules from authorize section a second time. (and moving all
the modules to the section post-proxy)
