The idea is that all global variables will be stored in a 
"context", passed to each C++ function requiring them. The user
does not have to put the context in a user function call, this
is done automatically, but the user interface will show
a clear separation between commandlines attached to different
contexts, for example a session could
be attached to a context. In a given context, a user will not be
allowed to run two commands at the same time. He will have to clone the
context or run the second command in a session attached to another context.
