You are welcome - and there are more patches still to come. I just
hope I haven't broken anything serious yet.

In this case Tcl accessing CDL variables wouldn't help. The Tcl only
gets evaluated when the CDL script is read, not every time some CDL
count variable changes. In the original CDL design there was a concept
of instantiating n objects based on the value of a CDL variable, but
that part of the design was never completely fleshed out and sadly
enhancing CDL is still not a high priority.
