Ofcourse, this is only available when you're in a CGI-like
environment. When running inside mod_python, or something
else, I doubt that this environment variable is available.
In those cases, there is usually a specific way of obtaining
the client's address, either directly or via the socket
that represents the network connection. But this depends
on what you're running!
