You might be able to use the mod_shaper module to do what you need:



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by the lone sea breakers,
And sitting by the desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world forever, it seems.

-Arthur O'Shaughnesssy
