I have a cookbook x and role x.  
I set default attribute values in the attributes file.
I override them in the environment file under that cookbook x name.

I now have a variation of that cookbook I want to support, so I create role y, and add x to the runlist.
Now I want to override attributes of x's environment values via an environment section y.

environment file:
        "x": {
            "some_attribute": true, 
        "y": {
"override": { 
"x": {
"some_attribute": false, 

but after I deploy, even though the node is under role y, some_attribute is still true.  

is there a way to override via the environment file x from y's override attributes?
