Just my uninformed opinion...It seems to me that calling saveenv twice 
is misleading.  What I mean is that I assume that I have a "golden" copy 
of my environment in the redundant area.  I should be able to call 
saveenv as many times as I wish without touching the contents of the 
"golden" copy and that there should be another mechanism to update the 
"golden" copy.  I had no idea that calling saveenv twice will overwrite 
the redundant area, but then again, I am in new to this.
