Question about tramp and remote environment.

Hi all:

I have a question about tramp usage when working in clusters.

In clusters normally there are modules that the user needs to load
dynamically for tasks like compiling a file.

When using tramp the expected behavior should be that once I open a
remote file and I want to build it with a version of make (or gcc, or
use gtags remotely, ) in a module I should do:

M-! module load xyz

and then the remote path will be changed.
But when I try this, the remote environment is not modified. If I print
the paths they are always the same.

If I try something simpler like:

M-! export var=1
M-! echo $var

It doesn't work either. So is this a design choice?

In any case what's the recommended workflow to use modules in this kind
of dynamic environments with modules?

Maybe there is a package I don't know?

Thanks in advance,
