Access to twisted request object in WSGI applications

It is generally useful to have access to the request object in WSGI applications. I propose the following patch to achieve this:

Index: twisted/web2/
--- twisted/web2/        (revision 18085)
+++ twisted/web2/        (working copy)

         env['wsgi.multiprocess'] = False
         env['wsgi.run_once']     = False
         env['wsgi.file_wrapper'] = FileWrapper
+        env['twisted.request']   = request 
         self.environment = env
     def startWSGIResponse(self, status, response_headers, exc_info=None):

My case: I need access to the transport (M2crypto SSL wrapper) to renegotiate the smart card authenticated SSL channel upon clicking 'logout' in webapp. This triggers a new certificate selection and also PIN entry. Current WSGI implementation hides the request/context objects from WSGI apps that normally is available in render(HTTP) methods.
