It is planned, we just do not know when it will be done, we have a
number of other urgent tasks ahead of us.

Agreed.   Currently the evaluator is a static API, and we want to
introduce an instance API, so we can support independent scopes.  When
we do that, we will likely add support for this.

In the meantime, if you want to inject a handful of variables, you can
achieve that by creating your own InteractiveBaseClass.
