That they are yet another way of changing config - And even worse, a
way to silently do so.

We don't have environment variables to change most other setting (And
no, please don't add them!), so I'm not convinced we need to add it
for xconfig/menuconfig, just because you prefer xconfig.

The point of having a configuration system like Kconfig is to use it.

Please look at the bigger picture, thanks.
