I don't know if Apache can apply settings based on the query string or
not. If it can, that's the safest approach. Otherwise, there is a <Query>
feature in the RequestMap, as documented. It can be very dangerous to use
because query string parameters are case sensitive, but many apps don't
treat them that way, so you can get around the mapping in some cases.

It also depends what the failure scenario is. If all you do is use it to
assign the override, and a failure to do that doesn't hurt anything, then
it's probably fine.
