@elliotlewis - Unfortunately I think that @loekwetzels is right. If you put to your hosts file a record as he describes, then SetEnvIf Host returns FALSE, so env variable won't be passreq. Because my host is omgihazaccess (from @loekwetzels example).

I think @jan-vodila and @loekwetzels are right. Probably not a good solution for anything seriously important
