Fine -- do we have any other "list-ish" configuration variable,
by the way?  I am just wondering if we earlier established a
convention to use some delimiter to list out things and if we do
have such a convention if delimiter is a comma or not.

This let's the repository owner to decide what can be used.

And limits the allowed format when the environment set to the
value the repository owner decided.

So we could enhance "--remote --list" to show what are supported
(both codewise and policywise) on the remote end, with a bit of
code restructuring?

I suspect "upload_format_allowed()" can be taught to see what is
in this environment variable and sometimes take that as
daemon_format without letting the repository to override it, so
that the site administrator can limit the formats that can be
used further, just like daemon service mechanism lets them be in
control.
