That could be done with an ifdef wrapper around the function that sets the
error string.  Note that even if it was disabled, it would still be passed
to CGIs in the environment when you use an ErrorDocument.  I looked at it,
and I'm not convinced the overhead is an issue because it only does
anything when an internal server error happens.

That would require we have one.  <g>  But good idea.

The other thing I would like to do is modify the error message a bit to
include server name, date, requested URL, client hostname, etc. in a form
that is useful for someone reporting the error to the admin.

The list of silly Apache people, of course.
