I'm not sure what your point is, but any variables (%varname%) visible
to the local clip is also visible to the far clip, AND vice versa.
The scope is ALWAYS global, UNLESS only the current clip/prcedure can
see a variable, even if the variable is left with a value in it, when
you exit the clip.
On the other hand, if a variable is stored only on disk (or in an INI
file) and you religiously restrict access to the disk file, then
values kept in ^$GetValue type variables DO have a LOCAL scope, rather
than a GLOBAL one.
