Why do you need that? This sounds like a very strange idea to me. I realize
there can be various cases, this is why I ask.

Probably, you can do better than using TYPO3 for redirects. Using TYPO3 for
that is really bad, see here why:

What you can try is to use rewrite maps. This way you will not need to edit
.htaccess or Apache config but the rewrite map file.

If you still want a TYPO3 solution, you may want to contact Sonja Scholz. I
think she had an extension for that. But again, I strongly advice against
it. You are going to use a heavy truck for a 10 meter walk...
