I can reconstruct the actual URL post rewrite rule, but is there a way for me to get the URL pre rewrite rule?

Also, when I run php in IIS 7.5, and have rewrite rules in my web.config, how do I get the pre rewrite URL in my php?

In Apache, the pre-rewritten URL is available in a server variable $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'].
