I was planning on abstracting memory allocations to an allocator for the
FastCGI/SCGI parameters, as an internal template argument. I'm not sure if
what I have in mind would be flexible enough though... Perhaps when I've
started properly coding the current ideas I could drop you an email and see
how far off I am?

In the meantime, I'll try to keep it in mind.
