If you need for your particular use-case you can add this kind of logic to the browser afterwards, or to a wrapper that starts the browser with the environment variable filled.

I couldn't find where I said this, maybe I said something misleading, but I didn't mean that.

I think we should just do what Qt does, for now; if the developer has used the environment variable, then it's safe to assume they want it, even without checking the developer extras setting. When we add API to open up the server in the future we can think about how it will interact with developer extras.
