Something like sbox?

I do not see any need to have this in core apache. There is already a
DocumentRoot for non-CGI restrictions and if you want to impose similar
restrictions on your CGI environment then handling that within the CGI
by use of something like sbox seems to be the way to go - no need to
burden Apache with that.
