Thanks Staffan!

The solution they use now isn't good, that's why they complained.

The proposed option might be useful by its own, in the case anyone else 
will be annoyed by the message about picking up the env variable content.
Please also note, that it's not meant to be a command line option.
It will only be used as a part of the env variable content.

Your point that there are already plenty of other options is true, but 
doesn't really suggests anything for this particular situation.

Sincerely yours,
