I believe Ben is thinking about variable variables, I would find it useful
too(a feature request...)

for example, on php programming, you can have a variable:

$variable = 10;

You put the name of a variable into another variable:

$variablename = "$variable1";

An operation like:


Will increment the value contained into $variable1

The $$ sign specifies the operation must be performed on the variable whose
name is contained into $variablename

Hope this was clear.. I'm sure not!!!
