Thanks for replying and informing correctness. More background is the
variable I want accessible for many functions and files either is
HTTP_HOST or SERVER_NAME used as beginning of url or resource locator
indicated where the software is used. Instead of declaring the
variable many times feasibility study is how to minify number of times
I declare the same variable. I got 2 files main.py and i18n both with
webapp request handlers which I would like access the variable.
