Probably late in the game, esp. for an outsider, but I read the
terminology discussion with interest.
FWIW, I do like Philip's use of context, though I feel that it is a
very generic word that may clash with many application-level
classes... For that reason, I also liked "scope" a lot, though it was
an... expension of that term's usual meaning beyond namespaces.
Anyway, what really struck me all along is that, when reading the
keyword "with", I always felt that I would replace it with "within",
which imho fits the context/scope terminology better. Thus "within" a
"context", we do certain actions... which are fenced with
__begincontext and __endcontext.
(Oh, yes, fences... What was the original precise computer science
meaning of that word, again?)
