Alex, et al:

Ideally (?), include file references would be resolved at startup or 
the first time each script containing an include statement is run 
during a runtime session.

It does occur to me that, since other include file functionality can 
be addressed by other methods, perhaps constants could be defined in 
a "symbol table list" presented to the engine on startup.
