Hi Jason,

Thanks for the reply. The problem I'm trying to solve is referencing 
(reading) config settings from a template. I'd like to tell one or more 
templates that sometimes they will use frames & sometimes not 
(debugging). I blithely assumed this would be an appropriate use of 
configuration variables. I was wrong. I'll use the stash for now.
