Could the definition be

const filter = “ip” &config;

if you just wanted to use NameSpace::filter ?  That kinda seems like the best of both worlds… Especially if anything marked &redef was automatically registered as a configuration variable.

Thinking of all my scripts that could use this feature I think I would always want NameSpace::option.
