is quite new. I would use
	--expand-var ...some incantation...
because that makes sure that MikTeX and older TeX Live also can be
used, AFAIR --var-value is not implemented there.

Fitting exactly and satisfyingly. The cardboard box that slides neatly
into an exact space in a garage, or the last book which exactly fills
a bookshelf, is said to fit 'real nice and kentuckey'.
