I have no idea, but I can say that the code that parses ShibRequestSetting
is standard Apache code handling a two parameter option, and that's all it
does. If there's some way to parameterize that, it better happen before
the command logic executes. I'm not aware of any general Apache facility
like that. But I'm no expert.

Personally, I would use Location if you're trying to set something based
on the URL.
