Thanks Phillip!  

This clears it up for me. Although, I disagree with the 
specification in this case; there does not seem to be a
reason why middleware shouldn't be required to send the
*same* environ dict along in subsequent calls. 

Certainly a middleware component may make N sub-requests
to subordinate applications; however, these are really
different requests from what the user made.  Further, 
there is likely to be more than 1 of them for this case.
So, it is quite different than the more usual case.

Regardless of my opinion on the matter, what *is* being
proposed for this particular problem; and more generally
for these sorts of situations?
