Yes, this is right and powerful for new programs, I will develop.

I'm thinking a way to move the 1000 programs that have been  written already from  publisher to servlet, probably I'm the only in the world with this need.

I've written something like servlet.__load_vars but instead to setattr(self, name, val) I put them in session[name] = val and the programs will search there.

In order to set query_vars I should enter inside the 1000  programs to discover the variables to set.

If I had the option to set for these kind of programs req.form = util.FieldStorage(req, keep_blank_values=1) in self.form.list I would find all this variables without looking inside the programs.

So I now understand that it is a special need concerning the past instead of the future, and  I may solve it in a other way,  so don't care anymore about it
