  1. In a point wrangle I create a new group, say mynewgroup, and set membership of it based on some criterion. Later in the wrangle I want to test for membership of that new group. I can't use inpointgroup because that looks backward to the previous node, where the newly created group doesn't exist. So, instead I use if(@group_mynewgroup) { WHATEVER } to test for a point's membership of the new group mynewgroup. To use @group_ syntax I need to hard code the mynewgroup into it. What if the name of the new group depends on the outcome of some code inside the wrangle so that I need to create the new group name on the fly? I'd like to be able to use something like string newgroup = concat('group_', 'mynewgroup'); if(@newgroup) { WHATEVER } I know this particular code doesn't do it but is there something along these lines that I could use?
