Allow appending to the PATH in environment sections

    Details

      Description

      You should be able to append to the path in the environment sections of a pipeline. Scripted pipelines support this through PATH+WHATEVER syntax in the `withEnv` step.

      Attempting to use PATH = "${PATH}:..." at a top level results in this error being thrown "groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: PATH", and attempting to use PATH+WHATEVER results in "(PATH + GO) is a binary expression, but it should be a variable expression"

            Ah-ha, just realized that https://github.com/jenkinsci/pipeline-model-definition-plugin/pull/110 should actually let us do this, with some parsing changes...

            Grr, nope. That doesn't work after all - the compilation error is hitting too soon.
