Hmm, so it's easy enough to move setting of both Vprocess_environment
and Vinitial_environment before the Windows code starts adding to the
environment. And getenv would have to be modified to consult Emacs'
environment so that that (expand-file-name "~") and (getenv "HOME")
give the same values.

But it seems we would then need 2 sets of functions: getenv/setenv and
get-subproc-env/set-subproc-env (the latter working on
Vprocess_environment only). This feels like a complication with not
much benefit.
