That behavior is intentional - the EC2_URL etc. env variables are only
used because the base library (aws) we use to talk to EC2 respects them;
it's therefore an implementation detail that setting EC2_URL works.

Users should set the API_PROVIDER environment variable to select an
endpoint when the server is launched; they can also pass the -P option
to deltacloudd.
