I believe you misunderstand (there are no shell 
variables involved afaict).

I am not claiming that I am sure this patch is a 
good idea (I am against behaviour changes) but 
this was reported by a user and I believe the 
patch does what the user wants so a decision will 
have to be made: Either close as wont-fix or 
apply this (or a similar) patch.

If you want to change the help text for the 
"install" options, please do it, I have no 
strong opinion.
