I thought the last time this was discussed (for a different option), the 
conclusion was that environment variables were more trouble that they were 
worth. Applications are liable to mysteriously break because a user didn't 
have the exact same combination of magic environment variables set.

My preference is for a commandline switch (like you implemented), and maybe a 
new intrinsic procedure so an application can control the setting at runtime.

I agree with RTHs comment that there's no point having all there as separate 
variables. We convert to/from a bitmap anyway, so we may as well just use 
that bitmap all the time. Also make the bitmasks into #defines so we don't 
have hardcoded values in multiple places.
