Re: Improved implementation of *env(3) functions in "libc"

My concern with using a tree is that it makes a concurrent getenv() very
hard to implement, and threaded programs like to make use of getenv().

Reader-writer locks don't scale on multi-core systems, and applications
like this one (getenv) may give you single threaded or worse behaviour.
