Sure. I don't think there is anything too controversial in this
step, but I'm sure it could use some guidance.

One thing about this change that I was kind of uncomfortable about
was the way I had to pass the retval back to the cgi_handler from
can_exec(). In the past, this check was called in cgi_handler only.
However, it makes more sense to add the security checks to this 
routine, and to call it for every exec() attempt as well. Alternative
methods welcome.
