I just discovered implicit parameters.  To everyone involved with 
making them, THANK YOU.  They are blazingly useful/powerful for server 
handler style libraries where you want to make a veriety of local 
environment information available to the handlers without burdening 
the handlers with a big dictionary object to carry around.  FANTASTIC.

That being said, they so powerful they are proabably easy to abuse. 
Could those experienced with this feature provide warnings about 
possible problems with overuse?

I see so many places I think I could make HAppS code nicer using this 
feature that I am concerned about making mistakes.
