[moving this thread over to the dev list]

as per earlier email in this thread, from my POV option
#2 is the preferred solution. Definitely change the name
away from PATH for usage which isn't $PATH anymore.

if it doesn't harm to automatically prepend the $PATH,
then why not make that easy for those who want to use it?
