which difference between %userprofile%/config-file and USER envvars?
both are USER owned and USER controlled.
certificate and keys also USER private data.
and stunnel started by USER owned by USER.
if stunnel started by SYSTEM/ADMIN he uses SYSTEM/ADMIN envvars (if
needed), certs, keys, etc.

global "generic/self-expanding" config file is ADMIN owned.
USER has permissions to substitute some values, restricted by ADMIN.
