Agreed. But that means an API, not an environment variable.

Qt Creator did the same thing: it set the variable via qputenv in its main 
function. The result? That got inherited by all applications it ran. Worse, as 
soon as you began running Qt 5.6 applications, they all began producing 
qWarnings if you ran them inside Qt Creator.
