Time to take Terry up on his logicals concept. Anyone familiar enough with
the way that VMS handles/d these willing to talk for a while on it? I
seem to recall that you could create logicals on a system-wide basis as
well as per-session (or was that per-user?)

There should be a way to integrate this with sysctl so that what are
currently sysctl variables become system-wide logicals with little or
no effective change, but the concept is extended to per-process group
(kinda like the environment), or summat similar.
