Make sure you understand the different between prolog
and the job starter.

The prolog is executed before the job is started. When
prolog finishes execution, the shepherd starts the

 shepherd ->prolog
 shepherd ->job

Job starter (or the starter method) is executed by the
shepherd, and the job is supposed to be started the
starter method.

 shepherd ->job starter -> job

Since you can pass the environment only from parent to
child, you need a real starter method to start the
job, not the prolog.
