If setting scripts may need to go someday, then we may need to consider 
why we are doing that.

For upgrading controls, I'm looking at methods that allow replacing the 
control based on core properties.  Perhaps some enhancements can help 

For function values, that is, values that I can use like functions, I 
have a crude method that uses 'do'.  If there is some method that 
allows compiling once and applying many times, then setting scripts 
becomes less interesting.  I suppose it is possible that Kevin will 
consider this as being just as bad as setting scripts.

It seems a limited setting-scripts ability is currently available, but 
we need to look toward the future with eyes wide open.
