Hmm. Sounds like a good idea to me. +1

On another note, I haven't seen any response to the patch I sent a few
days ago (in response to some mail from Dean Gaudet) that added a
FILEPATH_INFO env variable in util_script.c. I would rather like to
see that in 1.2, as it at least makes some old (and IMHO, somewhat
broken) CGI scripts at least be modifiable to work with 1.2 (right
now, they have no way of working).

If no one got it (I did, though), should I resend it?
