This was done intentionally. I felt it was a good idea to use the method I
expected others to use so that 1) there was an example of how other code
is expected to use mod_include's functions (even if cgi stuff changed)
and 2) provide a constant test of the current code status (i.e. if it gets
broken in the future, mod_include is the first to know about it - regardless
of whether cgi or other users are installed or not).

It didn't seem to be a performance hit and thus seemed to be more win than
