Shibboleth SP in front of HA-Proxy in http mode

Actually we are going to use the http headers. It probably wasn't obvious
from the original post.

I was asking merely to confirm that the environment variables won't work in
our scenario, because Shibboleth documentation makes pretty strong point
that it is the preferred way and should be possible in most cases.

Thank you a lot for your input!
