Okay, so this now really only is an escape hatch for users as we do not
specify it in our tests anymore. It does make me wonder whether we want
to name the envvar accordingly, but don't mind it much either way. It is
only intended to be a stop gap solution anyway that we can eventually
drop once we are sufficiently sure that there is no further breakage.
