The documentation contains the following information:
The call function can be nested. Each recursive invocation gets its own local values for $(1), etc. that mask the values of higher-level call.

The creation of temporary variables (which are just numbered) is already supported by this programming interface for function parameters.
I would like to use similar functionality in the way that make variables can be adjusted within an customised scope so that variables in other scopes can be left untouched.
With which additional function calls can corresponding variable scopes be managed?
