Description

=begin
Maybe I miss something, but why is there no way to get toplevel object easily. Only way seems
to be:

main = eval('self', TOPLEVEL_BINDING)

Would be nice if there were a simple way, maybe special global (({$main})) would be good choice.

It's simple, because no one wanted it ever.
Why do you want?

Why don't you set it?
