[Catalyst] FCGI engine and environment variables

I tried to follow this one through.  From what I can see the FCGI engine 
assigns the ENV information into a private variable %env.  it then 
attempts to pass that to handle_request.  handle_request passes the 
information to prepare() and then prepare doesn't do what it's supposed 
to (i suspect).

Either this is something which someone added by mistake, or someone 
started to impliment $c->env and forgot to finish it :)
