`tramp-remote-process-environment' is still in play. The let-bound
environment variables from `process-environment' are taken additionally,
and afterwards. So they would have precedence.

See bug#18940. The major reasoning is, that other packages do not want
to preload Tramp in order to set `tramp-remote-process-environment',
even if Tramp isn't used ever.

Best regards, Michael.
