epg specifically wanted support for an environment variable, and it
seemed like reasonably functionality to me. There are situations where
it's more convenient to use one--for instance, a script, you could
conceivably want to run "SVN_SSH=something svn import blah". And
there's also precedent in CVS.

Why do you find environment variables evil?
