12:21 masak yes, and I want to understand that better
12:21 masak I feel I should write something down, like in a gist, the mdoel I envision, and the things that it solves
12:22 masak a consistent model, that I *know* solves all the problems we've found, is kind of what I was aiming for with the scope-exploration
12:23 masak but I feel I'm now in a better place to get all the way there, or almost all the way, without having to implement it
12:24 masak also, it would be useful to be "excruciatingly clear" with concepts like block, scope, frame, variable, identifier... so that they only mean one thing consistently within the text.
12:28 Ven`` joined #6macros
12:29 masak Ven``: but there's a recent central point that I would hope I could get you to agree with, or at least reach some kind of consensus on
12:30 Ven`` go ahead?
12:30 masak namely "the blocks that we insert to mess with scoping in and out of the injectile are subject to the same need to update their OUTER as ordinary blocks"
12:31 masak I realize that this is stated from my point of view, where we use blocks like that in the first place
12:32 masak but I maintain that the *problem* remains even under your proposed model
12:33 masak I would probably be able to come up with a concrete example that highlights this
12:39 Ven`` that would be helpful
12:40 masak ok, expect both the start of a gist and a concrete example this afternoon
12:43 Ven`` Ok. not sure internet won't disconnect by then, but I'm watching the irclog anyway :).
12:43 * masak .oO( stay tuned )
12:43 Ven`` ™soon
