Bug Description

At present, variables and functions rely on so-called "helpers" (a sort of arguments) to understand the current environment and thus do what they have to do in the various environments/situations.

However, "helpers" is not very accurate. A better name would be "context" or "context items".

I've changed my mind, so I'll keep "helpers". The main reason is that this may not only be used to help the operands understand the context, but it may also be used by the variables and/or functions to pass some values around.

Changed in booleano:
importance: High → Undecided
status: Confirmed → Invalid

Well, I changed my mind once again and I'm reopening this to work on it as I explained initially, renaming "helpers" to "context".
