Make environment variables available to menus

I posted this on the Sublime Text forums here (http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1980) but didn't get a reply.

Do plugin menus have the ability to take environment variables? I see the `open_dir` command does, but is this exposed to plugin writer?

eg. Can I do something like this: `"args": {"dir": "$file_path", "file": "$file_name"}`?

I'd really like to be able to accept the file name, if possible. As it stands, in order to mimic this somewhat, I have two layers of text commands; the first simply calls the second, passing the file name as argument. Ultimately, I'd like to be able to do away with this abstraction.
