I've tested the new cgi package a few days ago and IIRC there were basically 
two problems:

   * Hugs doesn't support System.Environment.getEnvironment yet, but I guess 
that this could easily be fixed.

   * Some instances in Network.CGI.Monad overlap, which is not supported in 
Hugs. I don't know if the overlap is crucial and what the rationale behind 
this is. Perhaps I've missed some discussions on the libraries list. Perhaps 
we can simply #ifdef/remove the overlap. Ross?
