constructing redirects, trying to keep https connections

I've been looking through the documentation and looking for information online, but can't find anything. Currently I have this in a backend:

reqirep ^([^\ ]*)\ /omc/(.*)\ (.*) \1\
/foo/\2\ \3

What I would like to do now is do something very similar, except as a 302 redirect that includes https. I can easily match the URL using a path_beg acl, but I don't know how to go about extracting the relevant bits to construct the right redirect. Can someone help me with that?

Our setup is stunnel->haproxy->apache->tomcat, should that make any difference. We're having trouble with keeping https as https when tomcat redirects the browser. I know little about tomcat or the application, I've been tasked with fixing the problem in haproxy, which is 1.4.8 under CentOS5. The stunnel package has been patched to do x-forwarded-for.

Alternatively, are there headers I can include that would fool the apache->tomcat connection into using https in its redirects? I've been told that if we were handling the SSL on apache, it would inform tomcat and it would just work.
