Excerpts from Mark Voelker's message of 2017-02-09 15:41:33 +0000:
> I work with lots of different clouds and any time I switch focus to a terminal I have to figure out which cloud it’s environment is set up to use.  My terminal emulator has the same color scheme as my IRC client, so I’ve probably typed “set | grep OS_” into IRC accidentally about a million times over the years. 

Quick tip:

#1 - Move all those bespoke rc's into a single clouds.yaml:

#2 - Abolish OS_* except OS_CLOUD from your environment variables

#3 - Add $OS_CLOUD to your $PS1 -- You will now always know what cloud
you're pointed at.
