...except when variables are considered uninitialized until anssigned 
to the first time. Then you get a compile time error when reading a 
"typo variable". Doesn't catch assignment to "typo variables", 

Either way, that requires quite a bit of logic behind the scenes - and 
then you get funny errors like "Reading uninitialized variable!" when 
you misspell function names. :-)

(That can probably be dealt with, though. This gives me an idea...
