It occurs to me that there is room for something like a stack global and card global, where any script belonging to a stack or card would have access to those globals. This would address, in some basic fashion, namespaces if the stack were structured accordingly. Vet this if you please, and if it seems like a good idea I will submit it as an enhancement request.
