Pike 0.5 master compatibility interface.
Most of the interface is implemented via mixin, or overloading by more recent masters.
This interface is used for compatibility with all pikes until Pike 0.5.
Replaced by MasterObject.

- Variable environment
Mapping containing the environment variables.
The mapping currently has the following structure:
index : array(string)
Note that the index is lower_case()'d on NT.
Array string varname
Variable name with case intact.
This mapping is not the real environment; it is just a copy of the environment made at startup. Pike does attempt to keep track of changes in the mapping and to reflect them in the real environment, but avoid accessing this mapping if at all possible.
