This function expects the program to be called with the CGI interface;
when you call it directly on the command line, the Cgi module can't tell
what the CGI arguments are and which _HTTP_ method you use.

(Perl's CGI has something interesting for debugging: when the program is
called on the command line, the module asks the user for 'name=value'
bindings on the standard input; maybe this could be an useful feature
for Cgi)

This can't help for any problem at all: this construction catches the
exception and raises it again immediatly; except for the backtrace stack,
it is as if you did 'Cgi.parse_arguments default_config'.
