As I already explained, the more you insist on 'with', the less I like

I'm far for insisting on "with".  Everything I've written on scope hooks since the gems chapter footnote has presented scoped variables as viable.

I raised "with" again here because it's purely syntax sugar given scoped vars, and doesn't implicate the C API.  If the sugar doesn't look like a good value from this vantage point, I can respect that view.
