I haven't used publisher extensively, but FWIW you should be able to
call your setup code in the global scope of the module (it'll be
executed when publisher imports the module), and reference slot1,
slot2, etc in as globals in your publisher code.


(sorry for the duplicate, David, I forgot to re: list)
