Re: Do we need computed parameters in V1?

/ Alex Milowski <alex@milowski.org> was heard to say:
| What I found interesting was Jeni's examples of computing parameter
| values from different parameters and not inputs.  They didn't actually
| get values from inputs but instead just choose between two parameter
| values using some expression.

| Maybe we could address that issue and remove the need for expressions
| to handle that case?  Then we can push computed parameters on inputs
| to a future version.

We could allow parameters to have a select expression but mandate in
V1 that the context was null. That would allow computation of one
parameter from others and it would leave the door open for something
else in the future.

But I'm afraid I've forgotten Jeni's examples. Pointer, please?
