Apache 2.x http IRIs module

mod_fileiri implements http IRIs for directories/files, i.e. if accepts URIs with non-ASCII characters encoded in UTF-8 and converts them to the legacy encoding used in the file system which can be specified per directory, or even finer if necessary although that’s a real hack.

What is more, it continues to accept requests in the legacy encoding specified, and redirects them to the correct UTF-8 form, which then returns the actual document without looping.

There is also a backwards mode, which does redirects from URIs in a specified legacy encoding to UTF-8 if the directory/ filenames are in UTF-8.
