I'm not familiar with mod_ssl internals, but is there any reason we can't
move subprocess_env population to something early like post-read-request?
as a per-connection thingy, HTTPS ought to be know before the request cycle
begins, right?  maybe not for other things, though...

anyway, this same thing came up recently with mod_env

in that case I did trace the code and couldn't see any reason that the
population couldn't appear sooner, other than perhaps the history of
subprocess_env (but I haven't been around _that_ long :)
