> difference from the behaviour of Posix's execvpe() was deliberate

POSIX doesn't define execvpe [1]. GNU glibc implemented it in 2009 [2]. On Windows, MSC has had execvpe and spawnvpe since at least 5.0 [3], and I think it arrived in 4.0 in 1986. Guido added os._execvpe in 1.2b4 [4] in 1995. I think it's the only implementation of execvpe that searches the passed environment.
