that's part of my beef.  the other part is that these variables are now
simply variables with a dot in their name.  the developers think they're
scoping their variables, but they're not.  all that extra typing for
nothing.  a quick solution is to create a structure named attributes.  at
least then you're creating keys of a structure.
