about env directive

I want to enable the definition of custom environment variables in mod_wsgi.

After a quick search in Nginx sources I have found the env directive and 
the ngx_set_environment function.

Unfortunately the documentation is in Russian only 

I have found some problems with this directive.
- It seems that it is not possible to inherit enviroment variables
   from the "system";
   only variables defined with env directive are added to os environment
- The syntax should be
     env VAR|VAR=VALUE,
   but, as an example,
   does not put MALLOC_OPTIONS in the environment.

Thanks  Manlio Perillo
