I don't understand your frequent use of "trolling". I wasn't "trolling"
last time you suggested I was, and I'm not "trolling" now. And as far
as I know, Jacque wasn't "trolling" each of the times you suggested she
was either. Can we please move past that?
I'm frequently incorrect, but when I am it isn't intentional.
If you need to toss a word around try "mistaken", or even "buffoon", but
I'm not "trolling".

If you choose to use explicitVars that's your own choice. But with all
due respect, you're not the only one making plugins.
Many simply don't use it; I haven't even thought about them in years
since RunRev made their implementation in the IDE compile-moment-specific.
