cross-stack globals, also, file inclusion

Good morning, Richard.

I understand where you & Jacque are coming from storing constants as 
stack properties; but the more I think about it, the more I see the 
wisdom of Alex's global constants.

One can define the scope of variables:

	global myGlobalVariable
	local myLocalVariable

why shouldn't one be able to define the scope of constants as well:

	global constant myGlobalPi = 3.14159265358979323846
	local constant myLocalPi = 3.14159265
	constant myPrivatePi= 3.1416
