On my side, I'm not a big fan of the environment, I find it a too
hidden way to pass things. However, I find it a bit clunky to have this
as a fifth optional argument. The solution I would find the cleanest
would be to use real arguments for the download helper scripts, using


	git -o <output> -r <repo> -c <cset> -b <basename> [-q]
