maybe enable envvar-control in alphas/betas and disable in releases?
this way people who want to try something new can experiment, but those
who need stability will not be affected. after all, those who using
alphas/betas knows what they're doing and are aware of possible

i assume that not everyone are ready to build dmd from sources, yet
many people are ready to try new features, so they can download and
install separate alpha/beta to play with.
