Performance, and functional separation. No environment variables are
created/referenced. It is obvious to a web admin (average Joe) what
mod_auth_referer does, but not so obvious what SetEnvIf does in relation to
specific needs. This makes a specific function a component with separation
of logic from a more general base.
