If I requested /foo/bar/hi.html, filename would be /foo/bar and path_info would be /hi.html.
It might be that Apache decided to do something funky here because its map to storage handler
could not find $docroot/foo/bar/hi.html, and it’s only later that my PerlTypeHandler sets
the file to $docroot/$user/foo/bar/hi.html.
