It seems appropriate that the Message Box shows all globals, since
they're global in scope and available to every script running during the
The IDE itself shows only a very few globals, so I'm assuming the ones
you're seeing are for your own stacks, yes?
If so, one solution might be to consider using arrays, where you store
values for a given stack as elements in a single global.
Another might be to reconsider the need for such globals, perhaps opting
for script-local variables for those values only needed by a single script.
