--- Comment #2 from Abel Braaksma <abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl> ---
I find the Wikipedia discussion fuzzy at best, but from what I read it seems
indeed that there are some similarities between tunnel parameters and dynamic
scoping.

However (nitpicking, sorry), it seems to be a concept irrespective of
programming paradigm. You mention Smalltalk (OO language) and Wikipedia
mentions Perl (multi-paradigm), Powershell (imperative, OO), Lisp (functional).

Either way, I see your point for leaving it in, let's leave it in.
