Why not use a real state saving system like [sssad] then? I don't
consider ID'ing an abstraction with a unique $1 a hack, it's a very
useful approach to control an abstraction's settings remotely and is
well supported by [sssad]. It's even a lot more flexible than storing
all settings in arguments. If you create [sssad /somesetting $0] inside
an abstraction you even get local state saving for abstractions (in the
newest version of sssad). I recently combined that with the [dispatcher]
abstraction that I posted here some time ago  with good results. Will
post it as soon as my broken harddisk is restored.
