under OpenVMS the environment varibles (i.e. logical names) are not imported
automatically, presumably because there is no officially supported way to
enumerate them.

Would it be possible to add an explicit native rule to do this, asimilar to
the w32_getreg functionality? Perhaps vms_import <list of environment var
names/logical names>:

var_values_list = [ vms_import "X" "Y" "Z" ] ;

The values can be accessed using getenv, at least in reasonably recent
OpenVMS CRTL versions.
