I tend to use Script-Local Variables in two circumstances:

- where I might have used globals but want to avoid name-space collisions
(great for utilities and plugins where you have no control over the name

- when passing data to handlers, as you suggest, where the same container is
used among many handlers (except those that require their own copy or alter
it ways that would be undesireable elsewhere). === so why not use regular params() in the second circumstance?
