ProxyPass /gmap-demo/ http://localhost:8000/gmap-demo/
ProxyPassReverse /gmap-demo/ http://localhost:8000/gmap-demo/
in the apache that's running now on port 80.

Then, you'll be able to go to http://www.yoursite.net/gmap-demo/ and
Apache will redirect seamlessly the connection to your other Apache
instance running on 8000.
And no, only access to /gmap-demo/ will be redirected, the rest won't.
This, of course, means that you can't have a /gmap-demo/ being served
under the htdocs of the original Apache.
