Is the concern about copying the bytes?  Not sure I follow this either.  
A fixup hook ordered to run later than ssl_hook_Fixup will always have 
access to the SSL_* vars if +StdEnvVars is configured; such a hook can 
avoid copying from bytes from r->subprocess_env if it wants, I suppose. 
Or are you worried that's not really a concrete API on which you can 

Generally it is better to *avoid* using +StdEnvVars because it forces 
generation of all the variables (slow and expensive), and use 
ssl_var_lookup to generate only those variables you really need.
