And I find it rather sad.  It would be fairly easy to do and would
solve 99% of the problems mentioned.  Once that change is made,
we can see if a `synchronize-process-environment' (or similar) is
needed, but changing the behavior of `setenv' would be 100% backward
compatible so there really doesn't seem to be any good reason not
to do it.
