I think, that forwarding the full subprocess_env table is to much and 
usually not what is needed. If you really have use cases, where there 
are lots of env vars you want to forward, you could think about allowing 
patterns on the variable names. That would make administration less 
tedious but of course sacrifice performance a bit.
