Well, we don't manually set other variables in psql itself, with the
exception of defining some default values before we process command-line
args or psqlrc (see startup.c circa line 141) -- so in that case
allowing the value to be overriden is fine.

On looking at the code closer though, I do see one related problem: we
process command-line args before we read psqlrc, so psqlrc settings can
override what was specified on the command-line. Shouldn't this happen
in reverse?
