Replace environment variable by token macro plug-in

      Description

      At the moment the plug-in saves its output as environment variables. Instead, it could implement Token Macros (https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Token+Macro+Plugin) reusable by other plug-ins.

          Would setting a token macro be a complete replacement for an environment variable, or just an addition?

          With an envvar, you are able to use that data in a shell or groovy script for further processing. When setting a token macro, you can use the run-condition-plugin or conditional-buildstep, but it doesn't seem to be as featureful.

          Am I missing something, or are there other considerations such as pipeline support where not messing with envvars is preferred?
