Thanks for the reply.  It is good to know that the code is standard,
so if I see any documentation about using environment variables it
will work for ShibRequestSetting as well.

My Apache-fu is weak; I'll do some more looking, but I imagine I will
end up taking your advice and using Location.

Thanks again!
