Thanks for the feedback. I can absolutely make a temp storage datatype. Thats a really good idea!
Next question, is there a way to layer environments? I suppose I could just copy the environment I care about and apply the temp storage data type, but I am thinking it might be even cooler to automatically reference the other environments. For example, it would escalate like base > dev (not local) > temp. This would allow for dev to not be bogged down with local write events for temp edits, but still have temp inherent from continued development inside of dev?
