looks ok, but I'm a bit worried:
Your approach would only work when parallel requests execute their own
cgit cgi instance _and_ when setenv does not add the variables to the
environment of the web server, but only to the environment of the
executing cgit cgi. it thus depends heavily on the execution model,
while my solution does not.

your solution is much simpler and when we can guarantee that the
execution model is how we expect it so that parallel requests do not
interfere with eachother then I'm all for it.
