I currently have to build the query string from each field passed.  I
was hoping I could somehow just
split the query string. something like

TheQueryStribgBit = FullURL.split("&")

but I can't find a reference to FullURL with os.environ's

I apologise for my lack of clarity - the grey matter is getting a bit
long in the tooth.
