[Wish] Full access to program variables

I think an important wish to add is a rather simple one: Full access to any and all user-settable variables. If a user can open a menu and/or change a setting, it should be accessible via the API system.

I agree...all program state information, whether from menus, dialogs or floating palettes should be available for read/write access: full symmetry.

Simply and obviously yes.

While full access is our dream, I suspect that we will have a greater chance of getting what we need most if we list specific items that we need access to. We may have to wait some time for symmetric access to everything. (For example, I had asked for symmetric access to Story information earlier.)

So, guys: can you list the things that you most need/want access to, perhaps grouping by priority?

Thanks,
Karl
