.unexport: for the opposite of .export:

but whether that should touch the inherited environment or not
is another question.  I don't making it do that, but would a more
explicit operation be warranted?

.unexport-env: ?

Note that this operation will leak memory (at least the 1st time)
so should be used sparingly (I'd protect it with .MAKE.LEVEL == 0)

Do no harm where possible.
