Custom environment constants

Custom environment level constants can be passed in to your rails application (server, console, whatever) like this):

# bash, tcsh, whatever shell
GAMEMODE=pregame script/server

Within rails this constant can be accessed by

ENV['GAMEMODE']
=> "pregame"

ENV['DOES-NOT-EXIST']
=> nil
