For now, the first solution sounds good to me -- personally
I've always found env vars a source of surprize and prefer to keep
emacs customizations inside emacs. What I do wish for (separate from
package.el) is the ability to 

1. Have the custom file split into a per-package collection of files 

2. A solution that encrypts them all.

The present giant custom file gets very fragile -- I keep losing
settings inexplicably, and encryption would be nice.
