 Cool, could you abstract that a bit more so that we could have an env_vars
 configuration option?

 Like in nodes.cfs:


 And you could have this in broctl.cfg:

 env_vars="SOME_VAR=4 ANOTHER_VAR=test"

 There is probably some detail involving the quotes that I'm getting wrong,
 but I think the idea gets across.
