Nice! This was useful for me. In the past I had always SSH'd into my server to change the DB credentials that were hard-coded into config files after each git pull origin master. Using environment variables is a much nicer way to handle this - and definitely more secure than hard-coding production DB credentials in config files and storing them in a git repo (even a private one).
