Please Sam, drop your F* webpage. The [Open-Source] world don't need yet
another license. Or make it clear that no one should actually use it.

In most situation, this packaged can be replaced with:
echo $FOO > ~/.var_FOO
In some exceptional situation, where the variable variables and escape
code should be preserved, one can use:
export | grep " PS4=" > ~/.var_FOO
(No, it isn't guaranteed to be portable, and there might even be easier
ways to achieve all this).
I wonder how Unix could survive 30 years without such command.
