[rspec-users] Cucumber ENV setting in env.rb

My original observation wrt this problem was inaccurate. The same
behaviour is evidenced in both my Linux and cygwin environments.
Setting the environment variable "CUCUMBER_COLORS" in support/env.rb run
does not alter the behaviour of that run.
As one expects, any environment variable set within a process will not
persist after that process terminates. I lack the experience in either
OS to say whether or not doing so should affect the setting process
itself or only those processes spawned by that parent after the setting
of the variable.
I gathered from the cucumber documentation that the writer expected that
setting the environment in env.rb SHOULD have some effect. However, I
cannot say if that expectation was valid or not.
I am not experiencing any problems with displaying colours or text
enhancements (within the limited ANSI palette) in either environment.
