Maybe it's a valid feature, but the implementation is not valid.
Other applications also make use of the print routines (e.g., createlang),
and they cannot interactively set variables.  So I repeat: the print
routines may not access the psql settings.

I think we ought to detect the console type automatically anyway.
Certainly we don't want people to have to set this variables all the time.
