You don't have to pass it in to the script (as a parameter). The script
can simply read the environment variables.

import os

The following CGI script will show all the environment variables that are set:

#!/usr/bin/python -u

import os

print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n"

env_keys = os.environ.keys(); env_keys.sort()
for key in env_keys:
    print "%s=%s" % (key, os.environ[key])
