DJ Delorey:
    or, in the GO32 variable, "env <file>" options.  getenv() can scan
    that also, and go32 could be told to ignore it.

YES YES.  This is an excellent suggestion.  Can I suggest also that
it would be extremely useful even for non-DJGPP programs, and that
we *QUICKLY* try to decide on a name that we could standardize through use?

That way, it would be a little easier to search for the 'environment', if 
we want to; and remember, this file could be writable as well as readable.

To start the ball rolling, I'll suggest 'environ.env' as a default. I won't
try to defend that particular choice, I just want to start using something
that people can agree on.
