By the only "spec" for CGI, the documentation at 
http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/, PATH_INFO is to be 
URL-decoded.  There's really no reason not to do that.

Check out http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/env.html, it says:

> The extra path information, as given by the client. In 
> other words, scripts can be accessed by their virtual
> pathname, followed by extra information at the end of 
> this path. The extra information is sent as PATH_INFO.
> This information should be decoded by the server if it 
> comes from a URL before it is passed to the CGI script.
