I think mine was confused a bit by using the word "redirect". It was
really meant to be "from_user", and could take three values: definitely
yes, definitely no, and unknown (-1). And in the unknown case, we pull
the value from the environment.

Yours combines "definitely no" and "unknown" into a single value ("1" in
your case, but that is because "redirect" and "from_user" have inverted
logic from each other).

I think that is OK, as there isn't any case where a caller would want to
say "definitely no". The most they would say is "_I_ am not doing
anything to make you think this value is not from the user", but we
would still want to check the environment to see that nobody _else_ had
put in such a restriction.
