That works, but thats not what i want.

I want to stuff shell env variables into the perl env hash...

I want something like this:

	$ export is_local='1'
	$ export mp_lan_ip=''
	$ENV{'mp_lan_ip'}= $SHELL_ENV{'mp_lan_ip'};

PerlPassEnv can do that, but only in httpd.conf

I want to be able to access the shell env in though .

$ENV in mod_perl isn't $ENV like a regular perl script.
in a regular perl script, $ENV will have all the shell vars

under mp2, only path is exported into ENV -- and you can define other  
shell variables you want available to perl at startup.
