Yes, it is be possible. But what would be the purpose of such variable?
I cannot imagine any use case: strings can be in a random order, and
string has no relation to the previous one. If you really need it, it is
easy to implement it in the command:
Just save MSG(FILTER|EXEC)_MSGID variable contents to a temporary file,
and retrieve it during next run.
