I'd like to get the party line on this as well.  For a while now, I've made
a habit of defining an empty class called Global (Mr. Newton's could be
called Board, of course) at the top of my apps, and using its attributes as
if they were global variables.  It works, of course, but it feels a bit...
dirty.  Is there a more orthodox way to handle it?  Of course, it would be
optimal to remove any need for globals...
