For reference, Mercurial has long had HGPLAIN with a similar
purpose. See `hg help scripting'. I think that this is a
generally good idea to adopt. Albeit, I think that Mercurial
considers its command line a scriptable API, and HGPLAIN skips
over any customization of output. That may not be the exact
intention of this, but something related nevertheless.

Instead of a subcommand I think that a command line --option
would make better sense. It would only even save a few characters
in *nix shells where the variable can be inlined, but could be
more practical for MS Windows users that would need separate
commands to manage the variable.

Regards,
