v3 had global variables in CAR, and they were even accessible in the RAM
stage. In fact, I consider this to be one of the really nice features we
want. Global variables in CAR are not simple to do, and AFAIK that part
of the v4 codebase is still unchanged from v2. One day I will have time
to port that feature from v3 to v4.
