[mod_python] environment variables not visible?

I am guessing you are using the cgihandler. You can't see environment
variables from within the cgihandler-executed CGI scripts, it's mentioned


Your options are to switch to using the publisher handler or write your
own handler.

Also, I may be wrong, but I think information that is gathered by the
sybase client from the environment can be passed to it by other means.
