[PATCH 0/3] Implement authorization via external program

We needed to support querying gitolite from cgit to authorize authenticated
users and display only those repositories they have access to. In our case the
authentication is handled by apache and the user name is stored in an
environment variable. The first patch implements reading that variable. The
second patch allows querying an external helper. And the third adds an example
script to contrib/ showing how gitolite might be queried.

I would appreciate a ruthless review, since this is my first time doing any cgi
work and I am not too familiar with C.
