That's what its origins are, but eventually the "_env" will probably
just go away.  First I want to finish reworking the C APIs
around Max's module/handle concept.  When that part is done,
I think that's the time to discuss chucking all the "_env" tags.

OK, but for now it's best to think of trunk's env as being a 
programming environment (one for CGI, another one for Apache).
Eventually I expect it to look a lot more like's 
handle/driver concept, but that transition will be a bit messy.
