Yes.  I have done this with simple values.  Arrays, tiny numbers and 
strings with interesting characters take more work, especially when I 
don't know what I'm dealing with.  I'm not sure how to do it in general.

My current pondering involves a helper handler that takes a function 
name and any number of additional parameters.
