Hi, some other thread here are just discussing if IOS conference is
useful for such things. I have to say without threading etc. it's not
that useful to me for long ongoing discussions. Further for high volume
it's not very comfortable. That's why I mostly stay to the ML. Anyway...

Seems that I didn't took a deep enought look in it. What happens if you
run a PREBOLed script just normal (adding a do... In front of each
include)? Now I think it should run and nothing special should happen
to/with the issue! Values.

Really? IMO this should be possible. What's tricky is to find out what
to include from an included file. Including it completely is easy.

Yep, I agree. And this dialect should be loaded by default (like VID)
and support two modes:
1. Development mode: Just pre-process and run immediatly wihtout output
2. Release mode: Strip, create one-file output, compress etc.
