I think that the current behavior is fine, and that it shouldn't 
change.  Better to err on the side of safety for something like this; 
make it a FAQ, but it's a better FAQ than "I ran a CGI as www-data with 
the wrong $HOME variable and a web user deleted my entire home 
directory!  What do I do?!?"
