I just noticed the libnl example code already supports this:

$ ./nl-link-dump env dev eth0
LINK_NAME=eth0
LINK_IFINDEX=2
LINK_FAMILY=unspec
LINK_TYPE=ether
...

I wouldn't duplicate it for iproute, but rather complete the
libnl support (I think some object types are still missing
ENV dump format support) and tell people to use that for
scripting.
