[Mongrel] Passing environment to mongrel apps

I'm looking for a way to pass environment variables to my Rails app
via Mongrel. I want to conditionally execute code in environment.rb
based on these environment variables.
1. I have some special stuff I want to do when my Rails app first starts
2. So, stuff it in environment.rb in after_initialize, right?
3. Not this time. I have several other background processes that
include environment.rb, but shouldn't run this code.
Some other background:
I'm using lighttpd, mongrel, and mongrel_cluster
If there's not a way to do this, I can fallback on having all the
background processes set an environment variable, but this doesn't
seem as clean.
Thanks for the help!
