Summary0001824: Allow Xdebug's mode to be set through an environment variable

Using the command below I would expect the mode to change

XDEBUG_CONFIG="mode=debug" php --info | grep xdebug.mode
xdebug.mode => develop => develop

all other variables work in this way. Not sure if this is by design ? I was just trying out xdebug 3 so the documentation is limited

TagsNo tags attached.

At the moment there is only a subset of configuration settings that can be configured through XDEBUG_CONFIG, and I am in the process to reduce these with the goal to reduce configuration complexity.

I do want the mode to be configured by an environment variable, but instead I want to use XDEBUG_MODE. I need to work out how this interact with the INI settings, as I need to make sure that the right configuration group (env var, or INI settings) take precedence, and I will also need to add tests for this.
