Hi Kaleb,

Sorry for the late response, I have been away.

My question then is how do I put a 'tempate' into a scope so that I can use it

If I have:
xpath: d+=declaration p+=path
       ->template(d=d, p=p) .. do stuff.

... (Lots of productions)

comp: ^('comparison' (op= ... // etc

I need the 'd' template from the top production in xmlWhere which is a template
in a much lower production, how do I add the template to a scope in xpath so
that the same template is available as a parameter in xmlWhere.

I am sure that a scope will work. I have used the scopes before, but don't know
how to keep a template in the scope and use it again.
how do I reference the 'd' from 'd+=declaration' in the child production.

I was going to say that you need to use scopes to make that available later in
your code, but it looks like you're already using scopes.
Can you elaborate a bit on what I may have missed that makes scopes insufficient
for your needs?
