Subject: Re: [hwloc-devel] Priority of env vars vs. application options

That seems quite confusing.

I would think that consistency across all tools is best:

- command line
- env variable
- compiled-in defaults

If you're in an environment where you can't pass command line options,
then use the environment (either explicitly set or unset it).

Just my $0.02...
