It's confusing, but AFAICT what happened is that Mozilla started to disable it in release builds, but got a bunch of pushback from users and changed their minds and decided to keep it enabled. But then there was a snafu tracking the patch for that, so there ended up being a few releases where it was disabled, before everything got sorted out. But, it is enabled by default now. The very confusing thread is here:

And I don't see how this is any riskier than other envvars like PYTHONSTARTUP, which lets you name an arbitrary file that the interpreter will execute at startup.
