Assuming that in the common case, there are no two inputs concurrently
running at the same time using that same parent object, how do you clean
up stray variables for the following input? Also, in the VLM at least,
the previous assumption is false so it just doesn't work.

Granted, I could make a new patch to set variables on this dedicated
object in the input resources.
