I don't agree with --password-envvar. If we're going to support
reading a password from the environment at all, just do what everyone
always does with the environment: the application chooses the variable
name and looks for it unconditionally; and if the user wants or doesn't
want this, they can set or unset the variable.

(As others have noted, we may or may not wish to support this at all,
given that on some platforms a process environment is readable by other
