 * A belated minor request --- it would be good if there were an environment
 * variable which contained the IP address of the remote host (in addition to
 * REMOTE_HOST, which as I read the spec, is just the DNS hostname).  Perhaps
 * REMOTE_HOSTADDR would do.
 * This would allow scripts to easily use all the same authentication criteria
 * as the http servers themselves allow, including criteria based on subnet
 * masking, which may not be reflected in the DNS structure.
