Some time ago I wrote a variant of 'wrap-script' for perl scripts -- it
supported adjusting the load paths without touching any environment
variables, so it doesn't interfere with subprocesses (in contrast to
'wrap-program'), but setting arbitrary environment variables is not
(yet) supported.  It wasn't suitable for general usage yet and was
unpublished, but if anyone is interested, I could dig through git
branches & stashes to find it again.
