This is in the manual.

VIRTUAL_CVSROOT are missing from that description though).

It's so specific it's next to impossible to document.  Scripts shouldn't 
be written to expect anything about their environment anyway (too many 
potential security holes).

For most scripts it's automatic - the standard output is binary and they 
pick this up.  I believe python doesn't.. not sure about others.
