To my knowledge, getenv has been deprecated from 1.1 to 1.4 and has only
been reintroduced with 1.5. As Classpath (and other parties) has to play
catch-up to Sun it's understandable it's not back in yet. Also, note
that 1.5 is not final and anything is still subject to change. I would
find it inadvisable to change our APIs until we can be sure that Sun
won't change theirs at the last minute.
