But you understand it, right? I mean, what I mean?

The result of the _insertion_ of literal values at the
places of the parameters, will result in a function
that don't use variables (dynamic or lexical) but
_hard-coded_ values - that issue is _eliminated_.

Do you think it is correct in terms of technology?

Nevertheless, I would be interesting to hear if you
have a better way of putting it, as I happen to know
you are the only "Emacs beatnik" around?
