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.
