Umm, excuse me, but the environment variable was already there, it's
how the makefiles pass the fs type on to the test suite now. It might
not be the most 'elegant' solution, but I don't think it's the end of
the world considering that this is the test suite, and it's
essentially a bit of global state anyway. Of course, it now occurs to
me that this probably isn't the way such things happen on windows, so
yes, a command line flag would probably be best in the long run. I'll
put it on my TODO list, but I don't know when I'll get to it.
