Sorry Rob- I took off on a tangent about "global constant". An 
include() type of feature like one sees in PHP or Perl would be really 
useful. Geoff has mentioned something about Macros in the new script 
editor. Maybe it will be useful for you.

Although "incorporate any changes in myConstantList.txt at runtime" 
maybe too much to hope for- would the script have to recompile whenever 
the file is changed?
