Hi, Ed,

I've added in the patch and it should show up in the publicly accessible
darcs repository soon.  Your patch is a good catalyst for me to
differentiate global and local namespaces, so I'm working on
implementing something sensible there; I've added setglobal and setlocal
functions so that your $variable substition has something to work with,
too ;).
