it's not required for my setup. It was just an idea to have a way to configure
the state of the environment explicitly in meson. It could scrub the existing
environment (similar to sudo), and only allow -E options to explicitly set it
It'd enable cleaner, more controlled environment, for better reproducibility
and isolation of builds.
I guess it goes against the design principle of ignoring env so feel free to
ignore so feel free to ignore the suggestion.
