I looked at the entire history of that code.  This algorithm dates back
to 1996.

I think the issue is that environ may include the Zope process
environment variables, such as PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, CVSROOT, USER,
etc.  Publish.publish_module() appears to pass in os.environ .  That's
just a quick analysis, though.
