Paste already does this, for the N subrequest method. This is done at
least in paste.cascade, where we retry the request several times until
something responds with a non-404. Since it is common at least for
subapplications to rewrite SCRIPT_NAME/PATH_INFO, you can't pass later
objects the same dictionary as previuos objects. Well, I suppose you
could update the one-and-only environ from a copy you made before
sending the request on. But anyway, it doesn't do that.
I'd like to do this same thing (N subrequests) sometime in the future
for server-side HTML Overlays.
