Wow.  You've brought up an awful lot of stuff I want to respond to, about 
the nature of frameworks, AOP, Chandler, PEP 342, software deployment, 
etc.  But I know you're busy, and the draft I was working on in reply to 
this has gotten simply huge and still unfinished, so I think I should just 
turn it all into a blog article on "Why Frameworks Are Evil And What We Can 
Do To Stop Them".  :)

I don't think I've exaggerated anything, though.  I think maybe you're 
perceiving more vehemence than I actually have on the issue.  Context 
variables are a very small thing and I've not been arguing that they're a 
big one.  In the scope of the coming Global War On Frameworks, they are 
pretty small potatoes.  :)
