This ticket should be re-opened because the above case is
not covered. I *want* to get two separate test builds if I
give "prepend_path" a two-item list. Should we support two
kinds of environment INI parameter assignment? One for when
the user wants a multiplicative effect, and one for when
they do not? E.g.,

Do one test build. Prepend PATH with value1 and value2.

  prepend_path = <<EOT
      PATH value1
      PATH value2
  EOT

Do two test builds. Prepend PATH with value1 on first
build. Prepend PATH with value2 on second build.

  prepend_path = <<EOT
    &enumerate( \
     "PATH value1", \
     "PATH value2" \
    )
  EOT

So scalar context means do not mulitply runs, and list
context means multiply.
