It is just support for the env var that is different. Not much of a pain.

And to be honest, I am 99% sure that you will come up with again
a different solution/approach, and I will still need to put in the
Debian patches ;-)

This env var will anyway not used by anyone but those who want
to give tests on reproducability. I see not reasonable chance that
a user will tinker around with the env var.

??? What do you mean with "OS aware" here? "unaware"? I don't see the
relation to Debian and/or TeX Live.
