http-backend: respect existing GIT_COMMITTER_* variables
The http-backend program sets default GIT_COMMITTER_NAME and GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL variables based on the REMOTE_USER and REMOTE_ADDR variables provided by the webserver. However, it unconditionally overwrites any existing GIT_COMMITTER variables, which may have been customized by site-specific code in the webserver (or in a script wrapping http-backend). Let's leave those variables intact if they already exist, assuming that any such configuration was intentional. There is a slight chance of a regression if somebody has set GIT_COMMITTER_* for the entire webserver, not intending it to leak through http-backend. We could protect against this by passing the information in alternate variables. However, it seems unlikely that anyone will care about that regression, and there is value in the simplicity of using the common variable names that are used elsewhere in git. While we're tweaking the environment-handling in http-backend, let's switch it to use argv_array to handle the list of variables. That makes the memory management much simpler.
