FWIW, here's my alternate patch to implement PATH_INFO.  It seems to
give results that match what I'd assume (i.e. for a ProxyPass on
/fcgi, and a request to /fcgi/foo?bar&baz you'd get PATH_INFO = "foo",
QUERY_STRING = "bar?baz"), and I imagine you can play mod_rewrite
tricks to get more interesting behavior if you're so inlined.
