Actually, it is intended both to set the global search path (aka  
classpath, aka [declare -stdpath]), but it also allows you to query  
the global search path.  [import] will allow querying.

That's the intention at least.  I haven't looked at it in a bit, so  
they do not fully live up to those claims yet.  I think I was waiting  
for somethings from Miller to settle before taking it up again.

About putting the [declare] object first, I haven't figured that part  
out yet.  Plus the [declare] ordering was limited/buggy last I  
checked (a few months ago?)

and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.      - Martin
