In server/main.c, argv gets linked to the process_rec structure during 
the process startup.  Further, according to include/httpd.h, the 
process_rec structure can be reached through the request_rec structure 
(r->connection->server->process).  As such, argv[] should be available 
for reading most anywhere in Apache.

As far as the safety of making changes to those values is concerned, I 
have no advise beyond, "proceed with caution."  Especially if you intend 
on placing raw request data there.
