Yes, I also took a closer look at the RFC and didn't see how what you
proposed could be done.

I don't know if that could work, since this logic is to fetch the config
file where this variable could be set (or a load_env command invoked to
load these from an env file).

Another option is to have this feature under a configure flag that will
be disabled by default. Then distros that want the feature can enable it.
