This sounds like a great idea and will go a long way towards making people 
more comfortable.

As for the global variable problem, I think making the forms available to the 
other classes in the project would be a step in the right direction, if it's 
technically possible.  What about something like

Dim myTest as Form
Set myTest = Application.Forms("testform")

where testform is the name of the form to which you want to refer?  I know you 
don't have an Application object (or equivalent) presently, but I know 
somewhere in the interpreter you've gotta be tracking which forms have been 
instantiated.... maybe there could also be a way to get a count of forms and 
get references to them in a loop.
