All right, I'll have a look at std.file.  Thanks for the tip!

Also, I'd like to camelCase the functions' names (while keeping
deprecated aliases to preserve backwards compatibility for a while).
It's not crucial to me, but I think we really should try to keep a
consistent style in Phobos, and since these functions have so far been
POSIX-only and undocumented I would be surprised if it caused much
breakage.  Some suggestions:

  getEnv, setEnv, ...
  getEnvVar, setEnvVar, ...              <-- I'd prefer this
  getEnvVariable, setEnvVariable, ...    <-- ...or this
  getEnvironmentVar, setEnvironmentVar, ...
  getEnvironmentVariable, setEnvironmentVariable, ...
