This is not enough. Imagine we have GIT_DIR=foo in parent env, then a
sequence of "GIT_DIR", "GIT_DIR=foo" in deltaenv. Because we process
set/unset in two separate loops, the "last one wins" rule does not see
that "GIT_DIR=foo" wins over "unset GIT_DIR;". So we might print
"unset GIT_DIR; GIT_DIR=foo", which is fine even if it's redundant.
Except that we don't print that.

The problem comes from comparing with parent env. The new var has the
same value as parent env so we won't print "GIT_DIR=foo", just "unset
GIT_DIR;". This is wrong.

I'm tempted to just get the final child env from prep_childenv() then
compare with parent env and print the differences. It will not work
with Windows though, so Windows gets the old trace line without env
delta. I hope some Windows contributor will jump in at some point if
they want env tracing works for them too.
