Yes. It's not a gotcha, but a feature of sorts. I avoid globals
whenever possible, but Chipp Walters showed me a nifty use for them a
while back that uses exactly this feature. You can set a global
variable in a plugin stack, then go to some other stack and make use
of it. So it's kind of like having a palette of clipboards around.

...now if only constants had a global scope as well...
