I think it's a good a feature if we could add custom variables into
fetcher. For example,
we could fetch private code by adding username or password, or we could
adding custom
proxy tools.
I have found myself using a sed one-liner to alter that variable list
in the fetcher code in order to pass through to git the
GIT_CONFIG_GLOBAL environment variable, the goal being to do git URL
rewrites via the git configuration (to pass HTTP credentials, or to use
a local repo because I didn't want to bother keeping obscure VPNs
online); it was the shortest way I could think of to achieve this.
Alternatively I could have used a PATH modification with a host tool
Ideally I would prefer adding a KEY += value line to a site.conf.
