Hi @dueno & @roelj,

Applications can definitely live without any environment variable being honored by the library itself.  That's what they do already, usually defining their own environment variables: `GIT_SSL_CAINFO` for Git, `CURL_CA_BUNDLE` for cURL, `SSL_CERT_DIR` and `SSL_CERT_FILE` for Guix (same name as the OpenSSL variables), etc.

An argument in favor of having an environment variable honored by GnuTLS itself is that it would unify this and provide a sane default behavior for applications.
