We strive for unity.
We don't want to have different approaches across frameworks.
See Ben Maurer response to Environment Variables:

As I know developers/testers, their first solution will be to hijack the
file, so it's just a question of which file will they hijack? The makefile
or the App.config file. Non of the answers is good.

This time no. It should not mess testers by forcing them edit
application config files every time, rather than just setting
environment variables in their command line (including make
command line options such as "make BLAH=yes run-test").
