Hmm.. I got no idea how to work with other languages, good that you
do this.  ;D

Reworked cgi.rb parameter parsing to use Dictionary.

Nitro::Compiler.setting :mixin_get_parameters, :default => false

Lets do this next release, will add this to my todo list.

As an extra:

Nitro::Compiler.setting :non_strict_action_calling, :default => false

This can be used to configure if `def my_action(oid, val)` should be
treated as `def my_action(oid = nil, val = nil)`.

I thought after all that disagreement that perhaps a setting is best.
Just don't touch the default!  ;D

Oh right, and the testcases for these two new functions have to be
increased, I only added 1 per setting.

So, anyone here up for some testcase adding?  It's quite easy work
and can be done by someone new wanting to get a little into the
Nitro code.  Just add more tests and look how it gets handled and
if it's correct what it does.  (For example, try with more params,
less params, incomplete params, mixed params/action-params, param
mixing together with non-strict action calling.  etc.)

George, a little thought.  How can we test for correctly unescaped
paramets (any more places where this could go wrong?)?  Would be great
if you could add a little testcase somewhere appropriate.

Have a nice day everyone. :)
