#868 missing PCRS built-in variables in docs

version 3.0.21

Hi, I would like to point out that the four built-in variables ($url, $path, $host, and $origin) that can be used during the filter process are not found in the user manual (at least, I wasn't able to find them.) Since they are quite useful, I thought you might want to update the documentation to include them.

    Thanks for the report.

    Dynamic variables (and other options that aren't inherited from PCRE) are currently documented in default.filter.

    I agree that they deserve to be mentioned in the filter section as well and will look into this.
