I'm not getting any time for this, so I'll reassign it.  I haven't heard any further rumblings about this, so I think it's low priority.
Comment 5 Ian Kent 2009-11-24 22:32:14 EST
One way to allow program maps access to external values would be
to set the current macro table values in the environment before
execing the program. Someone wanting to pass information would
need only to define the value as macros. This would also prevent
us having to pollute the map syntax with custom options to define
the arguments.
