can a handler find out its caller's value of a local property

Specifically, if I'm writing a library routine which might optionally do its
work in a case sensitive way, the elegant way to expose this choice would be
for the library routine to use the value of the 'caseSensitive' property.
 
Is there a way in MetaTalk/Transcript to check the value, or force the
inheritance of, the 'caseSensitive' property?

TIA,
