I am new to mod perl and apache. I am trying to write a URI
translation engine which needs to use the cookies set on the client.
Additionally I want mod_rewrite and other URI Translational hooks to
be invoked once my hook is done.

Initially I thought PerlTransHandler would be the right thing to use.
But as it turns out, the headers arent populated until that phase. I
dont understand why is this? Could someone give some pointers on what
might be the right way of doing this?
