I smell something strange going on here ;). For every Org related
question I had in the last few weeks I found at least one other person
that had the same question roughly at the same time.

I use Org to generate projects, import stuff, set permissions etc. on
several servers for a software engineering course. I think it would be
nice to separate the student's personal data in Org tables from the Org
code that get checked into a repository.

My first attempt was :var, but the familiar
double colon didn't work, the single colon indeed did the trick.
