I think this make pass-through a bit harder, which I imagine could be 
fairly common.  And it also would add redundancy, since environ as 
define by CGI contains all those other objects.  If not CGI variables, 
then we wouldn't be building on any particular spec.

Also, request_url isn't actually part of environ right now.  Instead 
there is SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO, which provides important information 
about how to parse the URL.  There's also the (optional) REQUEST_URI, 
which I think is useful, but only advisory.
