How to get apache to serve files from one location, but send posts to another location

Hello,

I have an apache web server, which serves files from my subversion repository, and proxies to my tomcat application server.

I would like, when a user gets a file, apache serves it directly, but if the user posts back a file to the sameUrl, to be able to send it Tomcat for processing.

I tried this:
<Location /doc>
      <LimitExcept POST>
            Allow from all
            ProxyPass http://localhost/svnLocal
      </LimitExcept>
      <Limit POST>
            Allow from all
            ProxyPass http://127.0.0.1:8080/myApp/servlet
      </Limit>
</Location>

Either proxy works well for me, but not both. It seems that gets and posts always end up being passed to the same server. I found this, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4994803/apache-nginx-proxy-post-requests-to-remote-server-handle-options-requests-local, where someone found a similiar issue and resolved it with Nginx, but I do not want to give up on my apache  web server.

Anyone now how I could resolve this with standard apache configuration? Obviously, I could let all the requests go through to my tomcat server, then have tomcat performs http requests back to the webserver to serve the gets, but that would be horrendously inefficient!
