To be pedantic, we cannot create new CGI variables. That can only happen
through a new CGI standard (1.2?). Otherwise, err, this interface wouldn't
be very common.

Of course, httpd can always add extra non-CGI environment variables, as
long as you change SERVER_SOFTWARE so the script can detect this.
