I think if we're going to reject this solution on the basis of
performance, the burden is on us to measure a performance penalty.
getenv() does do a linear search, but it's a memory operation and the
environment almost always fits into L1 cache. I bet you won't be able
to tell the difference.

The other objections raised (environment variables aren't our preferred
method of configuration, and we'd be breaking source compatibility) are
more serious, though.
