Hi Wayne,

Does anything use/depend on it?  `unicorn' is modeled after `rackup' and
I don't think it's a good idea to expose things if nothing uses it
(rackup does not set it, either).

RAILS_ENV is an accepted standard for Rails applications and there are
plenty of things that already depend on it.
