Hi Chris,

Low-prio feature request:

Can you make the folder/group object take parameters that will be applied to each of the variables in the folder?

i.e. instead of
group g {
 var1 = 1 (persistant=true)
 var2 = 2 (persistant=true)
group g (persistant_default = true) {
 var1 = 1
 var2 = 2

Not sure if this is really the best solution, but might be worth it to save code redundancy?

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not crazy about this idea. I think statement macros are a better approach:

    %define pvar ()
        var (persistant = YES)
    pvar var1 = 1
    pvar var2 = 2

    That's a good idea. Thanks,
