For remotely executed stuff (an rsh-like program that allows execution
of commands on a windows host), I use the trick of setting it on the
command line. (It's unlike rsh in that it returns exit codes, and it
pre-dates sshd for windows.)
For stuff executed on the windows machine, we use a system env var
that has it set.
