Speaking about POLA, POLA says that valid call to setenv f.e. is in form
setenv("name", "value", 1);
it does not says that hacks like
setenv("name=value", "value", 1);
should be allowed and works.
Moreover, putenv() isn't BSD own function, and was incorrectly implemented
initially in BSD. BSD implementation just violates original POLA for
putenv() all other use.
Insisting to keep bug-to-bug compatibility forever leads to nowhere.
And increase porting efforts greately.
