[dancer-users] Apache environment in FCGI app

I'm working on my first Dancer application and want to deploy it in our standard server environment here. 

For authentication/authz we have custom mod_perl auth handlers that set Apache environment variables with user ID, group membership etc. I'm trying to write an implementation of Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Extensible::Provider that does auth/authz by reading those environment variables however %ENV isn't populated in my Dancer app. Looking at the source of public/dispatch.fcgi I noticed the following:

# For some reason Apache SetEnv directives dont propagate
# correctly to the dispatchers, so forcing PSGI and env here 
# is safer.
set apphandler => 'PSGI';
set environment => 'production';

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get %ENV through to my Dancer app or perhaps a different approach for auth/authz that uses $ENV{REMOTE_USER} and our custom Apache environment variables?
