Request for help - can variable values be passed to an Activity ?

I've modified some system files in /etc to define some global
environmental variables ( export WHAT=foo ). Those variables are
available within the environment passed to a Terminal session (or
when logged on at the text console) -- the command 'echo $WHAT
$LANG' will emit "foo en_US.UTF-8". But those same variables are
undefined within the environment passed to an Activity launched by
Sugar -- the command 'echo $WHAT $LANG' will emit "blank en_US.UTF-8".
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Low-level_Activity_API does not appear to
go into how come some "global" environmental variables aren't passed
when an Activity is launched by Sugar.
Please - is there a way to ensure that that a particular global
variable __does__ get passed to an Activity ?
