It is possibile in Koha to 'override' system preference values stored in the
database, by setting environment variables (export OVERRIDE_SYSPREF_... = ...
in shell, web server config file etc.). After Bug 11998, this feature may work
unreliably when used in combination with shared/permanent caching systems
(memcache, fastmmap) implemented in Koha::Cache currently.

- if the system preference is already stored in shared cache in the moment when
(some) other script will try to override it, such override will seemingly have
no effect for that script
- if the preference is not (yet) in the shared cache, and some script overrides
it "for it's own purpose", this override will get propagated to the shared
cache, and may unintentionally affect other scripts from now on
