While Jade has a -V option to set a variable to "#t" (true), there
is no standard method of accessing environmental variables.

If you are altering your environment based on a fairly high level
abstraction, then you can also use catalog files to set up
an environment. For instance a tool I wrote uses Jade to filter
a set of SGML files, producing output for three different 
audiences (tool administrators, tool users, and documentation 
authors). Before calling Jade, it sets SGML_CATALOG_FILES to point 
to the appropriate catalog for the audience. Each audience specific
catalog file declares values for entities called out in the document.
Badaboom, Badabing, there you go: output appropriate to the audience,
while the document and style sheet remain pristine.
