Thanks a lot for your answer, so this is not a feature :-). (I don't 
know how this could have worked  then :-(), I could send trace if you 
want, because this has been working for many years with more than 20 
requests /secondes).

We will try to code such a module in perl.

Is there any other way we could do that (eg regex on keys) using 
existing modules ?
