A comment from the peanut gallery... I *really* dislike environment
variables which modify the operation of commands. They can lead to too many
surprises.

"why is it doing THAT?! ... search ... search ... oh, dear lord! damn
 fuggin environ variable? die die!"

No way. Dunno what two-bit thought they would be Goodness, but let's
*please* rethink the whole proposition of *why* environ variables can or
should be used. Personally, I find zero reasons.

Cheers,
