I don't see how setting S violates this specification. For each ruby
implementation that we build for the definition of S holds. It just has
a different value for each implementation.

Correct, so in EAPI 4 we now set the RUBY_S variable to handle the
initial setup, and then we set S as part of the environment setup when
we are iterating through each ruby implementation within each of the PMS
phases.

Kind regards,
