It's not ``environ`` which is broken, it is the "special" entries like
wsgi.input and wsgi.multithread.
That's because I equate ``environ`` with the request headers. It may
be wrong. But if ``environ`` reflects the entire request and not just
the headers, why is it then not called ``request``.
Can we really talk about the request stream as the "environment" in
which the request must be answered? Or is it in fact, the "payload".
