The specific question was
"Is there a way to set the warning options via an environment variable?"
This has nothing to do with beta1; the warnings module was introduced
many releases ago, along with all the mechanics to disable warnings.

I guess you misunderstood. I propose you put warnings.simplefilter()
into your code. The warnings was introduced before 2.2.1 IIRC, so this
should work on all releases you want to support (but have no effect on
installations where the warning isn't generated).
