Mod Rewrite is a bear. I want to do this

URL typed into browser http://www.dilithiumtoys.com/
Return http://www.dilithiumtoys.com/?sessionkey=blah or URL returned as text from custom filter

I have two filters in between though. Mod Security and a custom one. The Custom one generates the sessionkey or sends back the url that should be fetched.

I guess I would like to know is how to pass the URL generated by another filter to mod rewrite?

How would I rewrite what I have? SecRule ENV:InfDoCmd "@eq Redirect" phase:2,nolog,redirect:%{ENV.InfDoVal}

I am only doing a redirect if the custom module tells mod_security to do so. I can change the custom filter to return a URL to follow always if that is required.

Currently if the user request meets the rules, we just pass the request along. There are no redirect or other type of actions below the statement above.

so entry to http://www.dilithiumtoys.com currently works in this way:

User is in China: redirect to http://www.dilithiumtoys.com/?e=601
User is looking for a bad directory: redirect to http://www.dilithiumtoys.com?e=401
User Passes: Do Nothing

Would I do this?
RewriteRule ^/*$ {ENV.SomeURL} [L]

Thanks in Advance
