... because ... ?

It's perfectly reasonable to obey system and/or user settings (which
are expressed via environment variables, or otherwise), and fall back to
something else if it's not set.

No. I questioned your insight into the current topic, and in fact, you

... I explained it to you already, and I am explaining it again because
you still didn't get it: We are _NOT_ talking about concurrent access to
