Comment (by rhaas):

 Actually: do we really want this? Turning the parfiles into a small turing
 incomplete programming language might not be the best idea. Personally I
 do not find the overhead of rpar files to be onerous. If we introduce a
 variable (to set several parameters to the same value) then maybe a better
 solution is to have the C code have functionality to use-that-other-

 I would try and limit the variables to the top part of the file so that
 they are not scattered through the file (though that of course differs on
 whether one likes eg C++ conventions or C conventions).
