This is exactly the sort of thing run2 *could be* good at. It allows to
set any environment variable before launching the target.  However, it's
currently a cygwin application, so some variable settings have no effect
(like CYGWIN).  One of the reasons for adding this capability to run2
was specifically to allow end-users to set LANG etc; it would be sad if
this doesn't work.
