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

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.

Otherwise, nice job. Thanks.
