Maybe there's a way to fugde it with PadWalker or something similar, instead.

    OK. That's pretty darned funny. PadWalker was my first attempt :) However, I wound up with some very strange bugs with PadWalker while I was holding aliases to variables in an outer lexical scope. It was very weird. Do you really prefer mucking around in the scratchpads better than a source filter?

      Not by much, but yes, I do. Of course, the real solution would be a real macro system, but it's going to be a while before we can play with that…
