The answer has always been that various devs are afraid of publicizing the 
env dir, particularly since settings there are not directly exposed via 
emerge --info, because it'd make bugs rather more difficult to trace due 
to the hidden settings.

Is that fixed yet?  Because I've always thought it was a useful tool too 
few knew about, as well.
