Hi Peter,

The config is called in the View package (fori::View::Menu) I was hoping 
to set TT2 values /per package/ via the config as created by the TT2 
helper. It looks like (after DEBUG => 'all') that TT2 only references 
the stash when it resolves variables.

I think that I'll look for other ways to solve this problem.
