[PEAK] What do you use 'offerAs' for?

I can't think of any uses that wouldn't be served just as well by
dynamic variables. There are presently 5 uses of offerAs in my
project: they offer connections to SQL DB's, the logged-in user, the
HTTP request, and one other thing I'm too ashamed to mention. ;-)
So, just to make sure I'm getting this straight...
To replace the use of `offerAs=[ISQLConnection]`, you'd do something
...where in the storage module it would say...
iSqlConnection = context.Variable()
Do you propose to basically keep a global around for each interface,
like I posit above, or do you have something whizzier in mind?
