The following dilemma exists... One virtual hosts, three directories with three different handlers let's say Mason, PHP, Ruby.

example.org/Dir1/ (Mason)
example.org/Dir2/ (PHP)
example.org/Dir3/ (Ruby)

Now when I request whatever from Dir2 or Dir3 I'd like apache2 to execute a script from Dir1 first followed by the original request. Is it possible to do it with some magic configuration option?

To me it seems like the only way to do smth like this is writing input handler, that is a program that Apache can use at various stages of processing HTTP request. More here:
