If it is possible to write a Login action that makes use of HTTP 
environment variables, then I can see some value in passing these 
through without being filtered. But are there any other use-cases where 
the environment variables would actually be used? Would these use-cases 
be any different from the existing "is a username set? if so, log them in".

I'm not very familiar with this section of code though, so maybe someone 
else can provide some comment on this.

Did you have a look at the serverfault link I mentioned in my last 
response? Was it a workable solution? If it is then I think it would be 
a preferable solution to fix this sort of issue outside of round (and 
document these sort of solutions) than attempting to solve them within
