Can't you code the connector to fond out ALL the server environment
variables automatically, and then pass them all on to the servlet? I
wouldn't call these "arbitrary" environment viriables.

Unfortunately, without the client certificate inmformation, Servlets are
useless to me, so I guess I will have to go back to JRun.

Please let me know when you get around to fixing this.
