Both can be done using Apache proxy, redirects or rewrites.  From what I 
have heard, /opencms/opencms/ will go away when version 5 gets a full 
release.  While Apache rewrite rules are considered black magic by some, 
it is what I would use, but only because I have some preconfigured 
rewrite rules at home somewhere (that is, not here where I can attach 
them for you).  Your best bet is to wait for the final release, then use 
Apache as a proxy, thus avoiding rewrite rules altogether.
