Even if the default shell had a setenv command (setenv is
a csh feature, not a unix command), that approach wouldn't
try this instead:
os.environ["VARIABLE"] = "value"
(for more info on why setting environment in one subprocess
won't affect environment variables in another subprocess, see
your nearest Unix FAQ).
