I have received a suggestion to remove checking the environment for
the value of a task argument. For example, given:
task :sample, [:path] do |task, args|
will print out the value of the environment variable PATH. The
requester comments that the feature can cause bugs that are difficult
to track down. Upon reviewing his comment, I tend to agree with him.
So, is anyone taking advantage of this feature? Would anyone be upset
if we remove it?
