I am bowing out of the variable substitution discussion after noting that putting it in a module would be a great start (like for sets).
This idea seemed to die for no apparent reason. Fred, Skip, and Barry all liked the idea of adding the string substitution code to a module (one idea for a name was textutils) and Guido obviously seems receptive to the idea.
Do people feel like moving forward with a new module?
