hi hans and matt,
thanks for your answers.
here is the problem that I am trying to address: I have a lot of 
arguments that I want to pass to an abstraction, and I don't want them 
all listed as arguments, which is confusingly ugly and eats up a lot of 
they are kind of "settings" and should be attached to each abstraction. 
For the project I am working on right now, I guess I will go with some 
hack (adding one ID as argument, that refers to a textfile or table that 
holds the settings).
I am not sure, what the stuff is that IOhannes wrote, can you give more 
details? links?
