Hi Steve

Thank you for your prompt reply.  You wrote:

The Zen of Python (which might not apply here) says:

    In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.

Now that we have more clarity, Steve D'A, please let me ask you a
direct question.

My question is about correctly implementing of __params__ as a keyword
identifier, with semantics as in Steve B's code snippet above.

Here's my question: Do you think implementing this requires the
avoidance of a race hazard? Or perhaps it can be done, as I suggested,
entirely within the execution frame on the stack?
