Hi folks:

   This should be an easy one.  I read and read and read.  The manual is 
fine, but my reading skills may be in doubt.

   This is what I want to do.  I want to set a simple variable named 
myvar in myapp.yml.  Then I want to pick it up later on.

So far so good, I have

myvar:	blahblahblah

in myapp.yml at the top of my application tree (in the same directory as 
  lib, script, root, ...)

Now, in one of my controllers, I want to get access myvar.  I thought I 
can get at it like this:


but I was wrong.


So ...  how do I get myvar into myapp as a global configuration 
variable?  Or is this generally discouraged as a practice, and another 
better one suggested?

Advice/clues/pointers (especially to fine manuals) welcome.  Thanks!
