OK. I confess I only looked at the "setenv" section which says "A
comma-separated list of environment variables and values to which they
are to be set." Then jumped to the bottom to look for examples, of
which there are zero.
I guess I should have read every single sentence, to find the part
about `~' and `$'. That looks sufficient for all the real-world
cases I've seen.
